Flora: Oxleaze Swing Bridge: Heale's Lock No.93


1976
SU5666 : Oxleaze Swing Bridge, Kennet and Avon Navigation by Dr Neil Clifton
This bridge only carries a minor farm track, and is of no use as a through walking route, because the River Kennet lies a few hundred years further south, with no bridge over it.
by Dr Neil Clifton

1976
SU5666 : Hale's, or Heales, Lock No 93, Kennet and Avon Navigation by Dr Neil Clifton
There does not seem to be agreement about the correct name of this lock, which was still derelict when photographed in 1976. The small footbridge in front of the photographer carries the towpath over a 'dead' arm of the river.
by Dr Neil Clifton



2012 Believe this is the approach to Heale's Lock as far as I know there is no Cranwell Lock. The slope is too long to be Cranwell Swing Bridge. MEP

1976
SU5566 : Cranwell Swing Bridge, Kennet and Avon Navigation by Dr Neil Clifton
The fisherman sits peacefully, knowing that neither he nor his quarry will be disturbed by passing boats, as this stretch of the waterway was still unnavigable in 1976.
by Dr Neil Clifton

SU5566 : Cranwell Bridge: Kennet and Avon Canal by Pam Brophy
A spring view of Cranwell Bridge. The photo was taken on the edge of the square, looking west towards Cranwell Bridge.
by Pam Brophy



1976
SU5566 : Midgham Bridge, and Midgham Lock No 92, Kennet and Avon Navigation by Dr Neil Clifton
Midgham Bridge is one of the few fixed bridges along this part of the Kennet and Avon. Now a steel girder bridge, it was probably originally a brick arch. Beyond the bridge is seen Midgham Lock, on which restoration work was actually under way on the date of this 1976 photograph.
by Dr Neil Clifton



2012 Seen from the same angle as Dr. Clifton's 1976 image.

SU5566 : Railway near Midgham Lock by Graham Horn
The second railway line from Reading to the West Country (the Berks and Hants line) runs parallel with the Kennet and Avon Canal most of the way from Reading to Pewsey. The railway builders followed the route pioneered by the canal builders.
