New water tap for Avoncliff

A new water tap is going to be installed at Avoncliff this year, according to K&A Manager Mark Stephens. This is to conserve water by avoiding the need for boats to go up through Bradford lock and down again just to use the water tap above the lock. When a boat does this it potentially uses two locks full of water – about 480,000 litres or 106,000 gallons.
