Spillweir thumbnail 2



At Pewsham the basic structure of the Waiting Wall Spill weir is now complete with the last of the coping stones cast. Well done to all the volunteers concerned. There will be a metal grating that covers the spill weir and we still need to do some landscaping around it but otherwise we now move on to the next project.




We have just started laying the concrete blocks to extend the waiting wall to the, at present non-existent, wing wall of Middle Lock. This is only a small length so, weather permitting, it won't take too long to complete. At the other end of the waiting wall we are extending and building up the wing wall to Bottom Lock.This is now nearly ready to have the coping stones cast onto it.

Elsewhere we have just started on the brickwork to the eastern wall of the Dry Dock. The base was laid last year and now the first course of bricks is nearing completion. See the  Dry Dock  Projects page for more details about the Dry Dock





Finally we are just waiting for the completed paper work (H&S etc) and then we can start on the building of the accommodation bridge over Top Lock. This will be a major project that will take several months to complete.
