The planned public open days at the world-famous locks on Saturday and Sunday February 15 and 16 have been cancelled for health and safety reasons as high winds and heavy rain head our way.

A Canal & River Trust spokesman said: “We’re really disappointed as we were looking forward to it but the safety of our visitors has to be the main priority.

“The good news is that we still have three more weekends planned, starting on Saturday 22nd February 22.

“People will be able to see behind the scenes of our lock gate replacement works and walk down into a drained lock at Foxton.”
