Boat in upper chamber, Thorpe Double Bottom Locks
Boat in upper chamber, Thorpe Double Bottom Locks
A double lock is two locks straight after one another, with a shared middle gate. As a boat goes up, the full upper chamber empties to fill the empty lower chamber, then the upper chamber is filled again. All flights of locks with shared middle gates are called staircase locks
