Assuming the other photo direction is correct, mine is on the opposite side of the bridge in the diametrically opposite direction - the pictures are not reversed. This is not a conventional lock with a level change. It is a stop lock to stop water flow and to protect the Stratford Canal from any loss in the Birmingham & Worcester. The Stratford Canal was owned by a separate company. This is a very rare beast and consists of one gate each side of the bridge.
