Work started to restore this lock in June 2014 with the construction of a bypass channel & fish pass which carries water from the Slad Brook around the lock. Once that work was complete, volunteers took over to restore the main structure of the lock which was in much better condition than expected.

This lock effectively marks the start of Thames & Severn Canal.
