The lock which was originally partly infilled has been re-excavated, and the brickwork structure is now fully restored. Most of the work has been carried out by visiting volunteer groups supported by the Cotswold Canals Trust and the Inland Waterways Associated (IWA) as a part of the Phase 1A restoration programme.
