Navigation closure notice: Kennet & Avon Canal, Navigation: Closed, Towpath: Open
From: Semington Bottom Lock No 15 to Semington Top Lock No 16.

Following the repair works completed earlier this year, a laser survey is required on the downstream lock approach walls.

This requires the pound to be drained below Lock 16.

To try and minimise disruption to boaters we will start draining the pound at 5pm on Tuesday 2nd July and then reopen the canal by midday on Wednesday 3rd July.
