The new lock gates in position
Yesterday I rode up to the Caen Hill flight to have a look at the work being done on lock 24. the new gates are in position, and while I watched a balance beam was fitted to one of the gates. Speaking to one of the workmen as they left the site he said they were on time so Saturday is still on.
This morning Steve Saunders on his boat Benjamin came along and moored up near us. He is also waiting for the flight to open and is expecting a crew of helpers to arrive soon. We hope to team up with him to go up the locks.
