Keddington Lock deterioration December 2010

The winter weather has taken its toll on Keddington Lock degrading the structure badly. Here are some photographs of the damage, kindly supplied by a Trust Members Peter O'Callaghan. The Navigation Trust are looking into how this damage can be minimised and solutions are being looked at.

Stuart Sizer & Josephine ClarkStuart Sizer & Josephine Clark signing a copy of their new book at the launch on the 26th May 2006 . 'People & Boats' is a fully illustrated 102 page history of the canal and will be complemented by an extension of the web based history project. It retails at 8.75  from local outlets in Louth, including Spencers, Wrights and the local Tourist Information Office. It can also be purchased from the Navigation Warehouse when the LNT Office is open. It is hoped eventually to place most of the original research material on the web site to give more people access to it. It is also hoped to place most of the original census records on the site in transcribed form.

The Louth Navigation Trust are extremely grateful to Awards for All, for funding the project and to Josephine and Stuart for their hard work in getting the book out.

The Trust are very pleased to announce the publication of the new LNT History 'People & Boats' by Stuart Sizer and Josephine Clark, which sees the completion of the next phase of our ongoing history project. There will eventually be further revisions on the history pages of the web site to complement the new book. You can purchase a copy of the book @ 8.75 plus p&p by downloading and printing the order form and sending it to the Louth Navigation Trust. Please download the form here.

Three Walks Brochures

Louth Navigation Walks

The Trust has published three walks brochures to go with the original 'Two Churches and a Canal" published last year. There are two circular walks and one linear - almost the entire length of the canal. Contact the office for copies and watch the calendar for guided walks. Copies are also available from local Tourist Information Offices and local libraries.

The scheme was funded by the Market Towns Initiative, Louth Town Council & Lincolnshire County Council. The Trust are grateful to all the contributors.
You can download all the walks brochures here.
