Moment of Pride

I am the Lead Volunteer Lock-keeper on the Caen Hill Flight of the Kennet & Avon Canal. All the Lock-keepers enjoy helping boaters work the lock gates and paddles. We provide information to visitors, walkers & cyclists. When there is little boating, we do some lock maintenance & litter-picking.
