The Pilkington Canal, drained (2)
The Pilkington Canal, drained (2)
This is the northern end of the short artificial channel, including the disused lock that once allowed access into it from the Thames, drained for a few weeks for maintenance. See also TQ4479 : The Pilkington Canal, drained (1).

The lock, and the swing bridge visible in the photo, are listed grade 2 (list entry number 1213695). The lock dates from 1812-14 to connect the Royal Arsenal Canal to the Thames, and the bridge came later, c.1876 to serve a standard gauge railway line to connect to the London Chatham and Dover Railway at Plumstead. The bridge is on the 2014 "Heritage at Risk" register.
