The main bulk of the work at Lock 14, Bradford on Avon, has now been completed and the navigation has been temporarily re-opened. 

However, we will be returning to site on Wednesday 29th January, when the closure will be reinstated to enable us to finish the work required within the well. 

The navigation will be fully opened, as planned, by the end of the day on Friday 31st January.


Temporary installation of a fabric dam at the bottom end of Lock 14, to allow draining of the lock chamber and pump intake chambers. 

Carry out repairs to the pump intake chamber, sluice and trash screen grills.
