The five locks at Seend on the Kennet & Avon Canal were once a hive of activity with trade. Today, they are a picture of tranquillity.

This winter we're replacing some lock gates, each handmade at our specialist workshop, which will be carefully craned into position to keep this busy canal open and available for people to enjoy. 

Our specialists will be on hand to talk about the works taking place as well as the wider efforts to look after this 200-year-old canal which has become a haven for locals, tourists and wildlife.
