2008 : Semington Lock No.15
Locks on the Kennet & Avon Canal were build without bywashes. The bywash allows surplus water to pass the lock and avoid flooding in the pound above the lock.
It has long been the custom among boaters using the canal to leave a bottom paddle open when leaving a lock - this applies travelling in both directions. Surplus water passes over the top gates and out of the lock through the open paddle.
British Waterways are in process of building bywashes. They leave notices similar to this on locks which have not yet been dealt with.
