Cookham Lock is closed to all traffic, due to a fault with the head gates and has been since about 1:30pm today. Currently no ETA for a fix, lock keeper suggesting it won't be fixed today.

Luckily I went through it this morning.

We would have made it through ourselves but a certain boat wouldn't move up to make space when there was a good 30ft in front of them, that turned out to be the last lock through before it failed 😠.

I can't find anything about it on EA's website, despite the lock keeper advising boaters to check there for updates. I guess asking for the website to be updated during weekday office hours is too much to ask.
