The Caen Hill flight will re-open on 19th December at 8am according to CRT. However the towpath between locks 47 and 50 will remain closed until 23rd December and the full repairs to the towpath will not be carried out until February or March.
CRT closed the Caen Hill flight until further notice on 30th October after engineers reported that the condition of the towpath and embankment had deteriorated further after the towpath between locks 48 and 49 was washed away.
CRT announced today (27th October) that the Caen Hill flight will be open while CRT repair the towpath between locks 48 and 49 but lock 50 will be padlocked at 4pm each day until repairs are complete to prevent further vandalism.
