K&A Canal low water level warning

From Bradford on Avon Lock (14) to Crofton Top Lock (55)

Craft should keep to the middle of the channel, share locks and moor with slack ropes to take into account falling levels.

There are very low levels on the Kennet & Avon Canal from Braford on Avon to Crofton Top Lock caused partly by an intermittent electric supply failure from the National Grid.

BW are manning the pumping station at Bradford until the water levels recover in each pound, working progressively from west to east.

East of the summit, Wilton Water is at a critically low level with barely enough water to supply the pounds east of Crofton. Heavy rainfall will be needed to improve the situation there.
