Here’s another great film of the canal restoration from Cotswold Canals. This is what they write: “10th December 2013. Lock gates are craned into Dudbridge Lock (Dudbridge lower lock). With impending winter storms, the bricklaying team set to work to complete the extensive repairs to the lock chamber, and Cotswold Canals Trust volunteers fit the new paddle gear. The skilled team from “Hargreaves Lock Gates” of Sowerby Bridge, continue with the installation of new timber cills for the gates. Main contractors “Land and Water” fit safety ladders to the chamber, and begin to transform the towpath. The scaffolding is then removed and the lock invert cleared of residual loose debris. With stop planks removed, the lock is fully operational. On 23rd December 2013, in driving wind and rain, the maintenance boat “Wookey Hole” makes the historic passage of the lock. This work forms part of Phase 1A of the restoration of the Cotswold Canals supported by significant funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund.”
