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 4 weeks. This will allow the river between Richmond Lock and Teddington Lock to drain down at low water on each tide.
The Draw-Off period will commence at approximately 13:30 on Monday 1st November and will complete at approximately 08:30 on Friday 26th November 2021. During this period river users are reminded that the river will NOT be maintained at the nominal level of 1.72m above Ordnance Datum Newlyn and it is expected the riverbed will be exposed at low water (see attached PDF). TYC members are advised to move their boats if they don’t want them to ground during this period.
Refer to the TYC Calendar and WhatsApp groups for dates/time of working parties and other critical information as needed. All TYC members with boats on the moorings are expected to attend the working parties. If you have questions and to confirm your attendance, please contact the TYC Harbourmaster.
