1/51 Lock No. 46 and
- Windy Bank Bridge

Lock and tailbridge. Between 1794 and 1798. William Jessop
engineer. Hammer-dressed stone. Double upper gates, recesses
to accommodate 2 sets of lower gates (neither of which now
exist) and tailbridge adjoining at south. Winding gear
remains. The lock walls reveal stonemason's marks.

retaining wall sweeps down to the lower level and
incorporates boatman's steps. The bridge is of a later date,
probably c.1840.
