It was a nice spring day yesterday, so we made the short journey up to Loxwood on the Wey and Arun canal, to see what progress had been made since we were last there. In order to take the canal under a busy road bridge, the Wey and Arun Canal Trust has lowered the Onslow pound by about five feet, and the bridge has been replaced.

The new road bridge is in place, but the water is still held back.

From the other side of the bridge, we could see why: a team of workers were building a wall which leads to a brand new lock, put in to restore the water to its original level. The lock hasn't yet got any gates.

As the towpath in that direction was blocked by the work, we walked the other way, reaching the Drungewick Aqueduct before turning around.
