Basingstoke Canal - October 2008

(Pictures by R G Silverwood)

Saturday's work was a concrete mix and pour, all in one go
at the lower end of the lock.

Due to the location of the site, the concrete had to be mixed
and transported across the lock by hand, all without stopping
to ensure a constant pour. Lunch was taken in shifts.

Gaz transports materials from the road access to the lock.

Eddie transports another barrow of muck across the lock.

A fine figure of a man!

An idyllic rural setting for the canal when it is completed.
