Canal & River Trust carries out essential work on Enfield Lock
A historic canal lock has been given a new lease of life after having essential repair work completed.
During the winter months Enfield Lock was drained by engineers from the Canal & River Trust for essential maintenance to revitalise the structure.
A number of repairs were carried out by the trust, including the replacement of lock paddles used to alter water levels when boats are travelling through.
Jon Guest London waterway manager said: “I’m very pleased to see Enfield Lock being refurbished and the maintenance work carried out to help keep the canal in good working order for many more generations to enjoy.”
He added: “The essential work the Canal & River Trust does every winter will help to preserve the wonderful working heritage that our canals offer to so many visitors.”
The £12,750 spent on Enfield Lock is just some of the £50million spent on conservation work spent around the country during the winter.
