Canal lock and footbridge. Probably 1790 when the original Smethwick summit
level of 1769 was lowered to that of the Wolverhampton pound. Brick with sand-
stone kerbstones partly replaced by concrete. Cast-iron sluice gear at upper
and lower ends. Single gates. The lower end of the lock chamber is spanned by
a brick footbridge which has a single elliptical arch and parapets with sand-
stone copings, partly rebuilt on the east side. The locks were by-passed when
the Smethwick cutting on the Birmingham Level was completed in 1829.
