Weather beaten 9 Aug 2018 The painting of wood on locks 1 to 3 completed before rain.

The long, warm dry spell has made it the perfect time to paint locks and today saw the completion of painting the wood on locks 1,2 and 3. Many of the gates are in poor condition and when they get wet take a long time to dry out. Trying to beat the weather to this objective has seen many crossed fingers and a sigh of relief when crossing the finish line. 

Now these locks can be revisited to paint the handrails, ladder handrails and bollards as well as carrying out maintenance tasks such as re-painting cill markers, lubricating the mechanisms and edging the locks.
