All that remains of the lock are the wing walls at the entrance to the River. The lock and adjacent basin have been infilled. There are no plans to restore this section of canal, as safer connections to the River Severn are provided by the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal.
'Old Stroudwater' is a term that has been adopted to describe the section of the canal between Saul Junction and Upper Framilode.
Before the opening of the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal, this was the route taken by the Stroudwater Navigation to connect into the River Severn.
Some of the canal in this section is now infilled, and locking into and navigating the river at Upper Framilode, which is also tidal at this point, could be somewhat hazardous. For these reasons, it is unlikely that this section will be fully restored through to the River Severn.
