walls of brick and stone with inset posts of oak, paired lower gates
and single upper gates of timber and wooden footbridges, without
handrails, on wrought-iron arched supports. Stone-walled basin
between each pair of locks with sides curved in plan to allow width
for passing of boats. The lower lock has mid C20 stepped concrete
retaining wall to bank of adjacent Sanderson's Brook. The upper 2
locks have curved flights of stone steps.
Dry dock, probably late C18, altered. Brick basin; entrance from
canal basin replaced in concrete. The dock, still in use, is
sheltered by a late C20 shed of lightweight dry construction.
