SO8661 : Droitwich Barge Canal Ladywood Lock (No.8 formerly 1)

taken 6 years ago, near to Salwarpe, Worcestershire, Great Britain

Droitwich Barge Canal Ladywood Lock (No.8 formerly 1)
Droitwich Barge Canal Ladywood Lock (No.8 formerly 1)
The canal re-opened in the summer of 2011 after decades of closure. It was decided to revert to the original lock numbering scheme of the 18th century, so that the final lock opening onto the River Severn became no. 1. The lock photographed here, which is the last one before Droitwich, was therefore renumbered from 1 to 8. The number is displayed on a balance beam at both ends of the lock. Visitors to Geograph should be aware that many older pictures of the locks will still refer to the old lock number.
