Keddington Lock on Louth Navigation breached in 2018 allowing a
drop in water level.
The water is no longer in the centre of the canal or high enough
to feed the Grade II listed water mill at Alvingham.
Keddington Lock has been in a poor state for a number of years
but has now become unsafe.
Remedial work requires major construction which is beyond the
volunteers of Louth Navigation Trust.
Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board have offered to undertake the works
as a good will gesture, using in-house resources and equipment
A new weir will be constructed using 200T of stone and both
banks will be reinstated using Geogrid technology through which
natural material will grow.
Louth Navigation Trust are appealing for donations to support
this repair to the canal in advance of the canal's 250th
anniversary celebrations in 2020
The works are expected to cost £25,000.
Contributions have already been received from IWA Lincolnshire
Branch and are pledged by ELDC, AW, LNT and Alvingham
LCC and EA have waived their permit charges thereby contributing
