lock gates

Having kindly received a grant from Somerset Industrial Archeological Society (SIAS) and with help from some of their members we set about putting gravel boards and weed suppressant around the Langport Lock Gates situated at the entrance to the museum. 

14mm limestone chippings have been ordered to be spread around next week to improve the look and maintenance of the gates. We then hope to produce an interpretation board to help visitors understand their use within the River Parrett.

Watch this space for images of chippings and boards! Many thanks to the SIAS members that attended today to help out and make the job much quicker than previously anticipated.
