Taken looking east from Hungerford town bridge, with the canal and its towpath running past the impressive Bridge House. The pink valerian flowers made a nice foreground. They were growing out of the brick parapets of the bridge.

SU3368 : Hungerford Lock No 74, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
In 1976, after walking along the K&A towpath all the way from Reading, it was pleasant to actually see some boats, albeit they were of the type that the seasoned narrow boat enthusiast would refer to scathingly as 'Noddy boats'

SU3368 : Leaking top gates by Graham Horn
This is the top pair of gates on Hungerford Lock, number 74. Despite all paddles being closed, they are still leaking well. Lock gates are generally replaced every 25-40 years and these are nowhere near life-expired.

SU3368 : Kennet and Avon Canal by Graham Horn
The canal to the west of Hungerford. St. Laurence's church is adjacent to a very-hard-to-push swing bridge over the canal.

SU3368 : Church swing bridge by Graham Horn
This is the swing bridge on the Kennet and Avon Canal adjacent to the church, hence the name. It is one of many such pedestrian bridges along the Berkshire section of the canal, most of which are still human powered (you push it open). Although the towpath remains on the south side here, this carries a popular footpath from the town onto Freeman's Marsh, which was bisected when the canal was built in 1795.

SU3368 : Hungerford church swing bridge by Graham Horn
This bridge gives pedestrian access through the churchyard to Hungerford Marsh. It is heavily used, as can be seen! When operating it for boats, it is one of the most difficult bridges to swing because it has dropped on its pivot over the years and will often stick on its mountings.
by Graham Horn
