Wallbridge Lower Lock, Stroud
Work started to restore Wallbridge Lower 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.
In 2017 work is continuing with the repair of a retaining wall below the lock. When complete the lower lock gates can be ordered and fitted.
This lock effectively marks the start of Thames & Severn Canal.
