Church lock at Great Bedwyn has been in need of repair. Due to leaks it has been taking about 45 minutes to get through this lock! The lovely volunteers of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust have been assisting at that lock for the past month. The paddles were broken and needed replacing, as well as the doors leaking and needing repairing. It took two days for the work to be done which involved damming and draining the lock so that the work could be carried out. Unfortunately this closed the navigation for those two days, but luckily for our customers we were able to avoid this area and holidays were not affected! We are really pleased that this lock has now been maintained and is working properly and easily. Thanks again for your help at the lock K&A Trust volunteers!
