Scope and Content Temple Locks (Lock 27), Forth & Clyde Canal, Glasgow This pair of locks forms part of the main line of the Forth & Clyde Canal. It is on the section between Maryhill and Bowling, opened in 1790, and designed by Robert Whitworth. This shows the tail of the lower lock of the pair, with the gas holders of Temple Gas Works in the background. The lock gates retain their balance beams, which were used for opening and closing the gates. The culvert on the left probably led a burn into the canal. These locks have been repaired and re-gated as part of the Millennium Link project to reopen the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals. The Forth & Clyde Canal was reopened in 2000.
