State of Lock: Good
Renovation to Date: Nil
Future Plans: Complete restoration
Lock March 2006
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.
