This is the first lock on the canal, giving passage for boats to and from the River Severn. However it is not open, as the re-opening of the canal has been delayed again. In June 2010 it was reported that it would re-open "by the end of the year". With the present economic climate, this perhaps needs to be taken with a pinch of (Droitwich) salt.
