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 Member Peter O'Callaghan. The Navigation Trust are looking into how this damage can be minimised and solutions are being looked at.





Keddington Lock 2019





Fast forward to February 2021

Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board have got the regeneration of Keddington Lock in hand and doing a brilliant job of repairing the damage shown in the above pictures. It appears that the lock was beyond repair to its original state and is being developed as a weir to control the flow of water in the canal.

Here is a photo of the weir as it is now, but you can keep up to date with pictures of progress on our Facebook page 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.
