SU6870 : Burghfield Island by Graham Horn
This is one of the junctions between the River Kennet (right) and the Kennet and Avon Canal (left) their courses having diverged about 500 metres upstream (left). This forms an island which is home to the Burghfield Island Boat Club.

SU6870 : Burghfield Island Boat Club by Graham Horn
The island is the home of a thriving boat club, with moorings for members along the canal bank and the river bank on the other side of the island. Small narrowboats are the popular choice.

SU6870 : Burghfield Bridge by Graham Horn
This bridge carries a heavily trafficked minor road over the canal. It now has single file traffic with traffic lights following a number of accidents involving vehicles and the bridge parapets. The towpath is shared by National Cycle route 4 (sign just visible) where cyclists are asked to dismount at this point.

SU6870 : The Cunning Man PH, Burghfield Bridge by Graham Horn
This "old" looking pub is totally modern, having been built about 2001. It replaced a much older building (also a pub with the same name) on the site. The gardens to the left run down to the Kennet and Avon Canal.

SU6870 : Burghfield Bridge by Graham Horn
A telephoto picture of narrowboats moored by the Cunning Man pub, just upstream of Burghfield Bridge. This is one of the canalised sections of the River Kennet, and thus has a flow. When mooring, if coming downstream, this way, secure your stern rope first or else you will be broadside across the river.

Burghfield Lock No.103


1975
SU6770 : Burghfield Lock No 103, Kennet and Avon Navigation by Dr Neil Clifton
Burghfield Lock is one of the original locks of the Kennet Navigation, and is one of the very few turf-sided locks on the waterway. Such locks require care when getting on and off the boat, and more than one 'beginner' has had an unlooked-for bath by not being aware of this.
by Dr Neil Clifton



2002 A distant view of Burghfield Lock from the west. MEP
