Looking after the waterway in winter

There's some fascinating engineering on the waterway which is seldom seen. Behind the scenes, our teams work all year round to keep the waterway going, adjusting the water levels and making repairs to the towpath. This winter we'll be replacing the lock gates at Newark and Town Locks.
