Allington Lock, which provides passage to and from the tidal section, may only be operated by Environment Agency navigation officers who are available at the following times:

Between March 1 and October 31, three hours before high water and two hours after, where those hours fall between 7.00am and sunset.

On any other day between three hours before high water and two hours after where those hours fall between 8.00am and 4.00pm.

The lock may not be used outside these times unless at least 24 hours notice is given to the navigation officer and the notice is given within the above times. Vessels approaching the navigation from the Medway Estuary should take particular care in relation to tides.
