K&A open again

THE lock that was damaged causing the closure of the Kennet & Avon Canal has now been repaired, with the navigation opened today, Monday.

It was last Wednesday as a result of a boat damaging the top Gate of Bedwyn Church Lock (64) on the Kennet & Avon Canal, that the waterway had to be closed at that point, with the damage making the lock inoperable, Keith Gudgin tells us.


The damage to the lock gate, which is at the bottom of the the Crofton Flight leading to the top pound, has been repaired in the interim period.
