Renovating the Geldeston Lock + unique cantilever scaffolding
Renovating the Geldeston Lock + unique cantilever scaffolding
Work has started on a £15,000 project to save Geldestonís historic lock from collapsing. The cantilever scaffolding is unique
The lock was built around 1670 to enable trading wherries to reach Bungay and is one of only two on the Broads system. Last used by wherries such as the Albion before the lock was closed in 1934, the River Waveney Trust is determined to save the lock chamber from deteriorating further and the trustís Beccles group has launched a project to restore it. The brick walls are crumbling, with trees and other vegetation growing through them, and recent surveys have confirmed that there is a risk of collapse.
Work began on August 6, with help from Waterways Recovery Group volunteers, who are experts in masonry and lock restoration.
