AlvinghamAs one of the grade II Listed Locks the LNT are considering whether this should be the starting point for the restoration of the locks. This would involve a bid for Heritage Lottery Fund money, but would create a marvellous area for Alvingham if both the lock and the old wharf were to be restored.

This picture, taken in March 2006, shows the south wall of the lock, and that, compared with the other listed locks, it is still in a reasonable state.

It is important that work on restoration starts soon as all the industrial structure of the canal is gradually decaying.

The Trust are committed to full restoration of the canal.
