2004 : Claydon Top Lock
The Oxford Canal arrives at its summit pound at the top of this lock. The next lock is at Marston Doles, just over 5 miles away as the crow flies but 11 miles along the twists and turns of the canal.
The Oxford Canal was authorised in 1769. It was engineered by James Brindley who built it as a contour canal. It reached Banbury in 1778 but did not get to Oxford until 1790.
