7/234 Lock 100 metres north north-east
- of Hearders Farmhouse

- II

Canal lock on the disused Stover Canal. 1824 for George Templer of Stover Park
q.v. This lock and the 2 other stone locks q.v. in Teigngrace were replacements
for the original timber clad clay locks of the canal which was built by James
Templer in 1790-92, the Engineer was Thomas Gray of Exeter. Granite ashlar.
Splayed entrances at north and south ends. Revetment walls recessed for gates
inside locks. Remains of later gates at north end only. Small C20 steel girder
bridge over south end.
The Stover Canal was nearly 2 miles long and joined the River Teign at Jetty Marsh
near Newton Abbot where barges passed through the dredged Whitelake Channel to the
estuary of the River Teign. The canal was a private venture and built to transport
local ball clay to the Staffordshire Potteries and later to transport Haytor
granite after the Haytor granite tramway had been built in 1820.
