7/214 Lock at Jetty Marsh

- II

Canal entrance look on the disused Stover Canal. Dated 1824 for George Templer of
Stover Park House (q.v.) This lock and the 2 other stone locks q.v. in Teigngrace
Parish were replacements for the original timber clad clay locks of the canal which
was built by James Templer in 1790 to 1792; the engineer was Thomas Gray of
Exeter. The entry lock at the south end of the lock basin is granite ashlar with
splayed entrance, the west side has a stone inscribed:- GEO. TEMPLER ESQR. 1824.
Revetment walls recessed either side for lock gates which are later replacements.
The large lock basin has wooden boarded earth sides, the east side later rebuilt in
brick with 4 cast iron bollards. The inner lock at north end of basin is also
granite ashlar but has been partly filled in with C20 bridge and circa 1866 railway
track of the South Devon Railway Companies' Newton Abbot to Moretonhampstead line.
The Stover Canal was nearly 2 miles long and joined the River Teign here at Jetty
Marsh near Newton Abbot, where the barges passed through the dredged Whitelake
Channel to the estuary of the River Teign. The canal was a private venture and
built to transport ball clay to the Staffordshire Potteries and later to transport
Haytor granite after the Haytor granite tramway had been built in 1820.
