SU4267 : Hamsted Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
Seen from the east. Hamstead Lock No 81 is just visible beyond the bridge. This is one of very few fixed bridges along the line of the canal: the majority were swing bridges.

Copse Lock No.80: Dreweat's Bridge No.39: Dreweat's Lock No.79:



2009
SU4167 : Approaching Copse Lock by Graham Horn
Just before the lock the River Kennet flows into the canal on the right under this footbridge. The lock is in a wooded setting, but with a strong sun almost ahead I found it impossible to avoid the flare.
by Graham Horn


2003
SU4167 : Dreweat's Lock - No.79 - K&A Canal nr. Kintbury - 2003 by Maurice Pullin
Also spelled Drewett's.
The River Kennet runs into the canal at Kintbury and out again about half a mile further down resulting in high levels on the canal in wet conditions. Any boater who has had the misfortune to be caught on the spill weir above the lock, only just visible on the right, will be well aware of this!
Water shortages are very unusual on the canal after this point. Also see SU4167 : Dreweat's Lock and bridge

SU4167 : Dreweat's Bridge and Lock, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
