SU2063 : East of Brimslade Lock, Kennet and Avon Canal, Brimslade, Wiltshire

taken 10 years ago, near to Wootton Rivers, Wiltshire, England

East of Brimslade Lock, Kennet and Avon Canal, Brimslade, Wiltshire
The view east shows the next bridge to the east, Bridge 105. The gates to Cadley Lock are visible under the arch. As is occasionally the case lock and bridge names can be confused and confusing. Cadley Lock is clearly named as such both on the ground and the Ordnance Survey map. Yet Wikipedia claims it is now called Wootton Top Lock. This makes some sense as Cadley is 3 kilometres away to the north nowhere near the canal whilst Wootton Rivers Lock is only 1.4 kilometres west on the canal.
