SU3568 : Below Dun Mill Lock by Graham Horn
The canal had about half an inch of ice on it here, on the open section below Dun Mill lock with the River Kennet off to the right. The ice made for an interesting (read difficult) turn for the trip boat at the winding hole, 300 metres east of here. The passengers did not mind or notice - Santa was on board.

SU3568 : Portdown Common by Graham Horn
This is the easterly extent of Portdown or Hungerford Common, which includes the section between the canal and the river from here to Dun Mill. The Common is still owned by the town of Hungerford. In the distance is Dun Mill Lock bridge.

SU3568 : River and canal by Graham Horn
On the left is the River Kennet. On the right, a few feet higher, is the Kennet and Avon Canal. The canal follows the Dun valley from Crofton to near here where the River Dun joins the River Kennet. At times the River Kennet is higher than the canal (not here) and various weirs allow the canal to be fed by the river and to get rid of any excess. Here the towpath runs between the two.

SU3568 : Icy Dun Mill lock by Graham Horn
We had to de-ice the boat before we could safely use it. We have Santa on board having met him at the lock, and with a sprinkling of snow the children (aged 8 months to 80 years), were enjoying themselves. I was outside on the helm, getting cold but enjoying ice-breaking.
by Graham Horn


It should also be noted that ice breaking with a narrowboat, especially a 70 footer with passengers, is a task requiring far more skill than is apparent to a casual bystander. MEP

SU3568 : Dun Mill Lock by Graham Horn
A very cold and frosty Sunday before Christmas, with a sprinkling of snow, a covering of ice on the canal that we had to break, and we needed to be very careful around the lock. We were on Rose of Hungerford trip boat and had just picked up Santa Claus.
