Hereford and Gloucester Canal, House Lock, Oxenhall
The early stages of restoration work under way on the lock chamber. Having lain derelict since 1881 the off side walls had to be cut back to the foundations to find firm ground, however since the lock is a listed structure is had to be rebuilt in exactly the same style as the original. The work was carried out by volunteers and managed by the Hereford and Gloucester Canal Trust LinkExternal link . See also SO7126 : Hereford and Gloucester Canal, House Lock, Oxenhall for the completed work to date.
