Lock Closure

December 8, 2015
Sea Lock gates open to the Irish Sea

Investing in our annual sea lock maintenance program

We have now confirmed the dates for our annual lock closure. This will be between 22nd February and 7th March 2016 inclusive. During this time Tony and his team will drain the lock and undertake a long list of maintenance tasks. Following this work, the lock will be as good as new, ensuring that the wild and windy Irish Sea doesn’t flood the town of Whitehaven but also protects all the boats behind those amazing 265 year old inner and outer breakwaters!
