Newbury Lock
Newbury Lock
Lock 85, with a rise of 5 feet 3 inches. The Kennet Navigation was constructed from Reading to Newbury in 1723. In 1788 plans were put forward for a canal from Newbury to Bath, and these received approval with an Act of Parliament to build the Kennet and Avon Canal in 1793. Newbury Lock, here, was the first lock to be started in 1794 and two years later the canal was usable between here and Hungerford.
