Aldermaston Wharf
Aldermaston Wharf
This is the original wharf (off to the right) on the Kennet navigation, now the Kennet and Avon canal, that served the village of Aldermaston, two miles to the south. Thus a small community grew up here in its own right. The lock was originally a turf-sided lock, like all of them on the Kennet navigation between Reading and Newbury. It was rebuilt in 1984 during the restoration of the canal. The flats have been built during the last few years on the site of the former Sterling Cables works. Various canoeists are seen practising for the Devizes to Westminster canoe race, that takes place over the Easter weekend. The swans ignore all the activity and go about their business.
