Glastonbury Festival

British Waterways is working with the Glastonbury Festival to recycle the old lock gates from the Kennet & Avon Canal.

The lock gates that were taken out of the Caen Hill Flight earlier this year as part of a half-a-million pound maintenance programme, are being reused and recycled at the Glastonbury Festival this year. They will be creating a bridge with some of the old gates. The bridge is in memory of Bella Churchill, the grand-daughter of Sir Winston Churchill, a glamorous debutante who very publicly dropped out of high society to run the Glastonbury festival.

A set of gates (2 lock gates) are going to be loaded onto a lorry and transported to Worthy Farm, site of the Festival this Thursday, 20th May
