Newbury Lock
Newbury Lock
Lock 85, with a fall of 5 feet 3 inches. It is, I believe, the only lock in the southern part of the canal system that has "Jack Cloughs", the manually operated paddles seen here that are levered open. They are not used these days, unfortunately, as the lock also has gate paddles. They are a common method of lock operation on Yorkshire waterways.
