Formerly known as Westfield Lock.
John Robinson Lock is the first in a flight of five locks near the village of Eastington when heading towards Stroud.
The lock, which is adjacent to Westfield Bridge, was infilled in around 1970 when the M5 motorway was constructed. This marks the eastern end of the 'Missing Mile', which is the length of canal that was lost at that time.
In the autumn of 2022, volunteers started excavating and rebuilding the lock as part of the Phase 1B, or 'Cotswold Canals Connected' restoration programme.
This lock was renamed 'John Robinson Lock' in exchange for a donation to Phase 1B.
The lock and bridge is the furthest point that walkers can travel alongside the canal heading west without taking a diversion along the Thames & Severn Way, until such time as the canal is reinstated.
