Pershore Lock on the River Avon
Pershore Lock on the River Avon
When the Lower Avon (Tewkesbury to Evesham) was restored to navigation in the early 1960's, after decades of disuse, it was found necessary to move the original lock to this position. The navigation and that of the Higher Avon (to just past Stratford-upon-Avon), are today owned and maintained by the Avon Navigation Trust. The waterway is one of the few navigable ones not to have fallen under the control of British Waterways, which it can be argued is quite a good situation.
