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
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.
