As of the 13 June 2019, we would like to share this important information from the Environment Agency for boaters on the River Nene between Northampton and Peterborough. Due to the heavy rains, there is STRONG STREAM ADVICE in force.

  • Locks along the river may be closed to navigation.
  • The Environment Agency strongly advises against attempting to navigate on the River.
  • River flows are above normal, too fast for safe manoeuvring and headroom at some sites will be restricted.
  • Boats should be moored properly to accommodate changing river levels. 

In an emergency, please contact the Environment Agency on 0800 80 70 60.
