12-03-2012 : FISH RELOCATED FOR BATH KENNET AND AVON CANAL REPAIRS

Specialist teams are relocating fish from a section of the Kennet And Avon Canal in Bath which is being drained to accommodate essential repairs to the lock walls.

The project, lasting three weeks, is being carried out by British Waterways at Bath Lock Flight on the Kennet And Avon Canal.

A British Waterways spokesman said that fish such as roach, carp, eels and bream will be moved they will be stunned and moved to either side of the drained stretch of canal.

They will be carefully monitored throughout the whole process and once the lock flight is reopened they should naturally swim back to their old habitats.

Lock seven, known as Widcombe Lock, through to lock 12, or Pulteney Gardens Lock, span the area where work is taking place.

British Waterways maintenance teams will carry out repairs to the 200year-old brick lock walls and also replace the lock gate seals.

The 19ft deep Bath Deep Lock is also among those included in the repairs, which is the deepest lock on the Kennet And Avon Canal and the second deepest in England.

Cruise the Kennet And Avon Canal and Navigate the locks at Bath on a Canal Boat Holiday from Hilperton.

During your Canal Boat Holiday to Bath walk in the footsteps of the Romans at the Roman Baths and hear the stories from the people who lived and worked there 2,000 years ago.

For fashion lovers the Fashion Museum hosts a world class collection of contemporary and historical dress.

Included in the display are 150 dressed figures to illustrate the changing styles in fashionable clothes.

Canal Boat Holiday visitors to Bath can take advantage of the many waterside walks from the gentle tow paths of the beautiful Kennet And Avon Canal to the banks of the River Avon.
