hidden by large ashlar blocks. Tops ashlar coped. Timber beams survive where
lock gates originally hung with some of iron fittings still in place. End

include a large basin for waiting barges to moor in, though much of this basin
is now silted up, and it too ends in curved embankments. 2 blocked, semi-
