Ysgwrfa Lock
Ysgwrfa Lock
Lock on the Neath Canal, that the inscription on one of the gates suggests was restored in 1990. It is also photographed in SN8605 : Ysgwrfa Lock, Neath Canal taken in 2012, and it is sad to see the deterioration in the condition of the lock since then. The balance beam of the top gate has now vanished, though it was already looking rotten in the earlier photograph. The balance beam of one of the lower gates has also now broken.
