Guillotine lock under renovation
Guillotine lock under renovation
This is one of two guillotine lock gates on the Stratford Canal at King's Norton. They were to separate the waters of the two canal companies at a junction and have not been used since the waterways were nationalised after WWII. The gate is seen top centre and an operating windlass is bottom left. The Stratford Canal was drained at the lock for work on the chamber. This was a public open day.
