Canal
II
Lock and lockgates on Stroudwater Canal at junction with Gloucester
and Sharpness Canal. 1826. Squared stone walls with stone
copings, modified by some later work on bridges. Lock
approximately 20m long by 5m wide, with 2 pairs of original timber
lockgates, balance beams and paddle gear, all of unusual design for
the Stroudwater Canal lock system. Two later bridges not of
special interest. This is a major historical survival, intact and
in remarkably good condition.
