- II

cast iron. Lock chamber walls of 4 concave brick sections on either side with
timber posts, now partially intact and exposed, in between. Posts partly
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
sections of embankment slope downwards to curved ends, and southern sections
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-

running north to south, is culverted and passes under the lock by means of an
inverted syphon. Navigation abandoned in 1924.
