Stratford Canal - guillotine lock restoration
Stratford Canal - guillotine lock restoration
This was an official open day to show the work involved in restoring a grade II* listed structure on a working waterway. One of the lock gates is scaffolded and sheeted. There is a cofferdam to the right keeping the lock chamber dry and the public are queuing for their hard hats and hi-vis vests. It was a well organised and well attended day.
