Saturday
Spence, James & Becky (Leaders) Saturday
At the last lock before Crofton, we met up with Robin & Marion and Andy and Janine of nb "Scavenger" and butty coming the other way. We stopped below the lock so that we could Many Meetings could get 96 litres of diesel from them to top up the tank. They have been operating their boats for ten years on the K&A selling boaters needs.

Sam,Aaron, Ollie, Ben and William (Explorers)

Briefed the group and we set off at about 10:00am in fairly gentle rain to go up the six locks on to the summit pound of the K&A. Each of the Explorer Scouts had a chance to steer MM out of one lock and up to and into the next lock, while the others worked the lock or walked up to the next lock to set it for us. Luckily the rain stopped and we were able to dry off.

Robin and Marion lead the way



When we arrived at the top, everyone climbed onto MM, four in the front and the other four in the stern and we sailed the mile or so to the turning point (or "Winding Hole"), going through the 502 yard Bruce Tunnel on the way.









After we turned round, we went back through the tunnel, at which point it started to rain again. Fine for the four scouts at the back, who went inside, but the four in the front were getting cold and wet! Just before the top lock, we stopped and everyone came into the boat for some lunch and to warm up. Lunch for the "lads" seemed to comprise mainly chocolate bars and pork pies! It was a bit cosy with ten of us on board!!!

After lunch, we went back down the six locks with each Explorer as well as the Leaders having a chance to steer. At the bottom, we turned MM again and we moored up outside the Crofton Pumping Station. We all walked into the Pumping Station together to have some tea and to take the tour. Unfortunately the station was "in steam" last weekend, but even when not working it is very impressive. There are two beam engines, one installed in 1812 and the other in 1846. They were designed to lift water into the summit pound of the K&A, which would otherwise dry out. These days, the job is routinely done by a large elecric pump, but the beam engines both still work, and are still capable of doing the job for which they were installed 200 years ago.

North East Wiltshire Scout Activity Centre
The Scout Activity Centre is situated on the outskits of the village of Burbage and is right on the edge of open Wiltshire countryside which is easily accessible by adjacent public footpaths. The building has a large hall for indoor activities with a small meeting room off the main hall. There are toilet facilities and a good sized kitchen with cooker, fridge etc. Although the facilities are old and rather basic they are clean and tidy, With a small local supermarket within walking distance.
