Scope and Content Wyndford Lock, Forth & Clyde Canal, North Lanarkshire This lock and bridge are at the eastern end of the summit pound of the Forth & Clyde Canal, and are on the first section of the canal, opened to the outskirts of Glasgow in 1775, and designed by John Smeaton, engineer. This shows the lock and bridge from the south-west, with the lock- and bridge-keeper's house on the left, and a 'bothy' for the keeper on the right. The bridge, of the standard Forth & Clyde Canal two-leaf bascule type, crosses the lock chamber. Both lock and bridge were operable in 1966, though closed in 1962. Though intact in 1966, the lock gates were subsequently cut down, like others on the canal, and the bascule bridge was replaced by a fixed concrete beam structure. The keeper's house became derelict in the 1980s, but has been restored as a dwelling house. The lock was reopened in 2001. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
