The are significant shallows being recorded between Gloucester Lock and the Upper Parting and Skippers are advised to navigate with care, keep to the main channel, and not cut bends.

British Waterways are asking customers who encounter shallows whilst navigating the River Severn to report them as they pass through the locks so that they can be investigated.
