Cookham Lock Power Problems

The following note has been received from the EA regarding the problem with the public power at Cookham Lock
There is a fault with the public power system at Cookham Lock. While we are working to resolve this fault the lock will have restricted opening times. Therefore, we would advise you to plan your journey in order that you arrive during lock keeper’s hours of duty.

Hours of duty for May and June are 9am to 6pm. Lunch break: 1pm to 2pm. From Friday 29 April to Sunday 8 May, Cookham Lock will also be manned from 6pm to 8:30pm. After that we shall review whether the additional manning beyond 6pm will be continued apart from on Fridays to Sundays. If there is not a lock keeper present during these hours, they may be operating one of the weirs. In this instance please telephone 0800 80 70 60. The lock keeper will be diverted to the lock to allow passage.

Between the hours of 10pm and 7am the lock will be operable on hand wind.

From 7am to 9am and 8:30pm to 10pm Cookham Lock will not be operable at all and will therefore be closed during these hours.

Work to install the new system is planned to take place from Monday 16 May to Friday 3 June (weather permitting) without the need for formal lock closure. During the work, the lock will be open according to the above schedule.

It is interesting to note that Lock keepers suggested covering extra hours in order to help boaters and volunteered to do the overtime needed.
Well done!
