Crofton Top Lock No 55, Kennet and Avon Canal
Crofton Top Lock No 55, Kennet and Avon Canal
This lock is at the eastern end of the short summit level of the canal. It is seen here as in derelict condition in 1976; however, it has. like the rest of this waterway, now been fully restored. Just beyond the lock are seen the derelict abutments of a railway bridge, which once carried a spur from the Midland and South Western Junction Andover to Andoversford line, joining the Great Western at Wolfhall Junction, just a few more yards away.
