A rare sight at Ham Mill

by: David M.

Something you don’t see every day – a boat in Ham Mill Lock.  Having finished sheet piling and backfilling to help stabilise the bank offside below the bridge, Samson is now moving up to make our way upstream.  Happy to report that all the lock gates are as smooth to open as you’d wish.

Before moving out of the lock, the stop planks had to be taken out.
People living nearby were very pleased to see traffic here 38 years on from when it was first mooted!
