'Derelict' Grantham Canal lock welcomes first boat in 90 years
Crowds gathered to watch a boat pass through a restored lock on Grantham Canal for the first time in more than 90 years.
The Canal and River Trust, Grantham Canal Society (GCS) and the Waterway Recovery Group have been working together over the past three years to painstakingly restore lock 15 near Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir, after it fell into dereliction in the 1920s.
It’s all part of a project, which was awarded a £830,500 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, to bring locks 14 and 15 back into use.
