Detail, Mouldon Lock, Wilts & Berks Canal (North Wilts Branch)
Mouldon Lock, on the disused North Wilts branch of the Wilts & Berks Canal, was the lowest of the flight of three Moredon Locks. The North Wilts branch formerly connected the main Wilts & Berks Canal with the Thames and Severn Canal, and ran between Swindon and Latton. This lock was restored, except for its gates, in 1988. This picture shows the top end in detail, with the top culvert to the right, and the wooden-edged cill to the left. The chamber is off the picture to the left; the top gates would have been level with the cill. LinkExternal link LinkExternal link LinkExternal link
