The Middle Level is the fourth largest navigation authority in the United Kingdom responsible for approx 160 km of statutory navigation and six navigation locks.

Please note that from 28th May 2021 new Navigation Byelaws have come into force. These replace the old and outdated byelaws and it is believed they will help closer align Middle Level waters with those of neighbouring navigation authorities to the benefit of water way users.

Tokens for the Sanitation Point in March Town Centre are now available from March Library and the Council Offices in County Road.  Further information can be found on the Council web site, by phone on 01354 654321 or on the purple information board at the service block.
