From Oxford to Sonning we have only seen two lock keeper and and one assistant, that equates to 14 unmanned locks of the 17 we have done to date! What a shame if these locks and surrounding gardens and houses are left to deteriorate. As well as lock & weir duties, lock keepers advise boaters on moorings, safety and places of interest on their patch. It will be a sad day when the Environment Agency workforce and duties are amalgamated into C&RT.
