In order to carry out essential maintenance works on Richmond lock, weirs and sluices, it will be necessary to lift the weirs at Richmond for a period of 3 weeks. This will allow the river between Richmond Lock and Teddington Lock to drain down at low water on each tide (see attached PDF).
The Draw-Off period will commence at approximately off from 16:00 Sunday 27th October to 07:25 Sunday 17th November. TYC members are advised to move their boats if they don’t want them to ground during this period.
The main TYC working party will be held on Sunday 3rd November from 12:00 to 15:30pm, and a secondary one on 10th November from 0700 to 1000 or during the week days if it proves necessary. All TYC members with boats on the moorings are expected to attend the working parties, preferably the main one on the 3rd November. A brunch will be held afterwards on Sunday 3rd November for work party members. If you have questions and to confirm your attendance, please contact the TYC Harbourmaster.
