Kennet & Avon closed at Crofton again

Published: Thursday, 03 August 2017

FOR the fourth time since April last year the Crofton Flight on the Kennet & Avon Canal is closed to navigation.

The closures are usually through structure failures, either of locks or the pumps that supply the flight, and this time is no different, Keith Gudgin tells us.

The worn collar of the bottom gate of Sam Farmer Lock (58) has finally broken off, closing the waterway.

It is at present being investigated.
