Architecture Notes

NS47SE 113.01 NS 4501 7349.

This lock gives direct access from the lower canal basin (NS47SE 113.00, NS 4503 7352) into the Clyde.

Information from RCAHMS (MD) 1 August 2000.

When the canal was closed in 1963, the lock was maintained as part of a small section of working canal in order that fresh water moorings could be supplied for boats on the Clyde.

G Hutton 1993.
