SU2966 : Fore Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
Fore Bridge, about half a mile east of Little Bedwyn, gives access to a couple of cottages, but otherwise carries only a bridleway. There is the customary notice warning that it is not suitable for unusually heavy loads.

SU2966 : Fore Bridge by Graham Horn
This is a farm accommodation bridge. The road is classified as a byway, although you have to cross the railway to the left on the level. This house is squeezed between the canal and a minor road, but has always been an attractive and well-looked-after property.
by Graham Horn

SU2966 : Kennet and Avon canal and the bridge over the railway, Little Bedwyn by Brian Robert Marshall
The bridge is concrete with an art deco appearance. If asked to date it I'd say it was from the 1930s

SU2965 : Little Bedwyn by David Stowell
The Kennet & Avon Canal at Little Bedwyn, with Little Bedwyn Lock behind. The Berks & Hant main line is just behind the hedge to the left, hence the footbridge in the distance.

These two footbridges between them span the canal and the parallel Great Western Railway. The road bridge at Little Bedwyn can be seen beyond.

SU2965 : Little Bedwyn Lock No 67, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
Looking westwards in 1976, this shows the derelict Little Bedwyn Lock. One of its bottom gates hangs drunkenly open, while the water in the pound above is contained by the top gates. The road bridge at Little Bedwyn, which carries an important minor road, can be seen behind.
by Dr Neil Clifton

SU2965 : Little Bedwyn Lock by Graham Horn
Little Bedwyn is one of the classic places on the canal for photographs, showing some combination of the railway, the canal, the church, the lock and the footbridge. It also happens to be on the border of two grid squares. I was waiting for a train to come as we worked the lock, but as you can see from the wash our boat is leaving and I'm meant to be on board.
by Graham Horn

A boat heading uphill enters Potters Lock number 66. There is a slight gap between the railway and the canal here, separated by some rough grazing.
by Graham Horn


2003
SU2865 : Potters Lock - No.66 - K&A Canal - 2003 by Maurice Pullin
"Pairing up" makes these broad locks easier to work and saves water, an important consideration as much of the canal water used in locking at higher levels is back pumped at some expense.
by Maurice Pullin


1976
SU2865 : Overflow paddle gear  near  Potters  Lock, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
This gearing allows an underground paddle to be drawn to let off surplus canal water into the nearby River Dun. AS far as I know it was not operable at the time of the photograph.
by Dr Neil Clifton
