with subsequent repairs. Ashlar, partly rebuilt in engineering
brick and concrete, with metal and wood gates. Lock chamber has

the chamber there are wooden and iron bollards. Leat, partly
rebuilt in concrete, curves off to the west of the lock and
returns to the canal below the canal bridge. Built as part of
the Erewash Canal.
