SU2562 : Freewarren Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
This part of the Kennet and Avon was still unnavigable at the time of this 1976 photograph. The derelict Lock No 58 (fourth from the top of the nine-lock Crofton flight) can just be seen through the bridge, which carries a lane giving access from Great Bedwyn to Burbage.

SU2562 : Freewarren Bridge and Lock No 58, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
The last boatman who passed through this lock has NOT been negligent, even though the bottom gate is open. Instructions here are that locks are to be left empty. To see a picture from the same viewpoint in 1976 before restoration of the canal, see SU2562 : Freewarren Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal

SU2562 : Old railway bridge and Lock No 57, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
This derelict railway bridge once carried a spur from the Midland and South Western Junction (Andover to Andoversford) line joining it to the Great Western at Freewarren Junction. There was also a west-facing spur which joined the GW at Wolfhall Junction. On the photograph, the remains of the then-derelict Lock No 57 can be seen just past the bridge abutments.
