Description:
The Semington Locks () are situated at Semington, Wiltshire on the Kennet and Avon Canal, England.

Both the locks at Semington were built between 1718 and 1723 under the supervision of the engineer John Hore of Newbury. They have a combined rise/fall of 16 feet 1 inch (4.9 m).

The two locks at Semington are known as Buckley's (No.15) and Barrett's (No.16).

Adjacent to the locks is the point at which the former Wilts and Berks Canal joined the Kennet and Avon.

Close by, the Grade II listed Semington Aqueduct carries the canal over the Semington Brook. East of the locks, the canal crosses the New Semington Aqueduct, built in 2004 to bridge the newly-constructed Semington village bypass (A350 road).
