SU1962 : Wootton Rivers Bottom Lock No 51, and Wootton Rivers Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
After clearing Wootton Rivers Bottom Lock, the westward-bound boatman will enjoy a long lock-free pound in which to prepare himself for the shock to his system which is waiting for him at Devizes. Wootton Rivers Bridge carries a minor metalled road.

SU1962 : Lock, Kennet and Avon Canal by Maigheach-gheal
The lock at Wootton Rivers attracts not only boaters but lots of tourist. The canal adds to the pretty village.

This slightly foreshortened view shows a canal boat leaving the lock to continue a journey east.

The type of leakage seen below is usually caused by steerers who allow their boats to rub against lock gates when entering and leaving locks. by MEP

SU1962 : Lock gates, Kennet and Avon canal, Wootton Rivers by Brian Robert Marshall
A bit leaky and with a healthy growth of vegetation, the gates do well enough for long enough to allow a boat through as other images for this square will show.

SU1962 : Bridge - No.110 - K&A Canal nr. Wootton Rivers - 2002 by Maurice Pullin
Carrel Crown Bridge from the east.
There seems to be some doubt over the spelling of this bridge name, the early Nicholsons Guide available in the 1970's calls it Curret Crown Bridge, the current Nicholsons and OS Explorer 157 call it Carrel Crown Bridge.

SU1761 : Milkhouse Water Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
A very peaceful stretch of canal here. The bridge carries only a minor metalled road.

SU1761 : Milkhouse Water Bridge - No.112 - K&A Canal - 2002 by Maurice Pullin
Milkhouse Water Bridge is seen here from the east.
Hills to the north of the canal between Devizes and Wootton Rivers form the southern edge of the Marlborough Downs, all are worth the walk to the top, the walk from this bridge to Martinsell Hill and Giants Cave is particularly recommended.
OS Explorer Map 157 is useful.
