SU2462 : Crofton Top Lock No 55, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
This lock is at the eastern end of the short summit level of the canal. It is seen here as in derelict condition in 1976; however, it has. like the rest of this waterway, now been fully restored. Just beyond the lock are seen the derelict abutments of a railway bridge, which once carried a spur from the Midland and South Western Junction Andover to Andoversford line, joining the Great Western at Wolfhall Junction, just a few more yards away.

SU2462 : Crofton Top Lock by Graham Horn
Lock 55, the top lock of the Crofton flight and, if heading uphill, the summit of the Kennet and Avon Canal. It is all downhill to Bristol from here. In the background are the abutments of the former railway line from Andover that crossed over the Berks and Hants line to the right and continued to Swindon. The bicycle is my lock wheeling transport.

Wolfhall Bridge (not to be confused with Wolfhall Fields Bridge, which is about 500 yards to the east) carries only a footpath, although some 100 yards to the north at the railway bridge, this becomes a bridleway.

SU2363 : Western Portal, Bruce Tunnel, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
The 502-yard long Bruce (or Savernake) Tunnel has no towpath, so in the days of horse-drawn boats they would have to be 'legged' through whilst the horse was walked over the top, (he probably enjoyed the change from pulling the boat!)
