The lock at The Double Locks
The lock at The Double Locks
The pub is named after the lock it is situated next to. Originally built as a lock house in 1701 & rebuilt in 1827. The double locks are so called because they can accommodate two boats at once.
Exeter Canal
Built in the 1560, this is one of the oldest canals in Britain. It was built to allow the port of Exeter access to the sea, bypassing the Quay downstream at Topsham. LinkExternal link
