Lot Navigation


The River Lot Navigation fell out of use in the 1920's, and although several sections have been restored there remain obstructions between a derelict lock at St.Vite (near Fumel) and the Fumel hydro-electric barrage. and also at a barrage just upstream of Luzech. As a consequence there are three separate navigable sections, the Lower Lot from the Garonne to St.Vite, the Upper Lot from Luzech to Larnagol, and what I call the Middle Lot, where work slowly progresses to link up with the other two sections.
