Caen Hill Locks - Cinderella stirs.
Caen Hill Locks - Cinderella stirs.
Seen on a dull October day in 1980 during the first stage of restoration. The lock chambers have been cleared of debris, including the rotten remains of the old lock gates, last used in the 1940s. The side pounds have been cleared of most of the vegetation, as well as riding stables and a builder's storage yard that occupied some of the dry pounds. It was to be still another 10 years or so before the locks were restored to the working condition we see today in the other pictures for this (and the adjacent!) squares.
