Newark, Notts (Basin & Lock)
The blue-painted door marks the entrance to Lock Entry Cottage. No-one appears to have lived here for some considerable time although scaffolding in the rear yard suggests that repairs to the property are in hand. This series of locks, including the one ahead that is no longer in use were constructed between 1770-1808 by William Jessop. The locks were constructed, along with the weir, to augment the natural depth of the river and thereby to make it possible for bigger barges to be used. The "historic riverside trail" continues round the side of Lock Entry Cottage, beyond the bollard.
