SP8814 : Puttenham Bottom Lock – with lock gates open

taken 9 years ago, near to Puttenham, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Puttenham Bottom Lock – with lock gates open
Puttenham Bottom Lock – with lock gates open
The bottom end of Lock 11 with the gates open and folded back into alcoves in the wall of the lock. Half way along the lock a ladder was installed a few years ago in case anyone fell into the lock when the lock was empty and the bottom gates closed. This was presumably done because someone muttered “Heath and Safety” - which no-one worried about for the first 150 years of the lock's life.
