Grand Union Canal: Stoke Hammond Lock
Grand Union Canal: Stoke Hammond Lock
Stoke Hammond Lock is Number 23. The lock, the lockkeeper's cottage, the bridge beyond and the former pump house out of sight to the right form a cluster of four Grade II Listed Buildings or Structures. The lock seems to have been built as a twin with another lock on the right, and two arches in the bridge at the lock tail. If that was the case then the twinning must have been short-lived as the large scale Ordnance Survey map of 1881 and all subsequent editions currently available online show only one lock.

In this case the lock gate has been left open to allow a narrowboat heading in the opposite direction to enter the lock.
