The boat entering the lock is called "Tamesis II". St. John's Lock is the highest lock on the river. Although further on at Inglesham there is a lock into the Thames & Severn Canal. Currently both lock and canal are closed though there is a restoration of the canal underway. See:- SU2299 : Cotswold Canals Trust information point, St. John's Lock, Lechlade-on-Thames, Glos.

The river's head of navigation for motorised craft is more or less near the canal lock. However it is recommended to turn before the footbridge over the river which is reached shortly before the junction with the canal. Long ago before the canal opened it was sometimes possible, all being well, for boats to reach Cricklade in Wiltshire and slightly beyond. It would be very ill-advised to attempt that today.
