PARISH OF LONG EATON LEOPOLD STREET
SK 43 SE
4/27 (East Side)
Long Eaton Lock
GV II

Lock chamber, gates and leat. 1779, by engineer John Varley,
with later repairs. Ashlar, partly rebuilt in engineering
brick, with metal and wood gates. Chamber has been very little
rebuilt but has concrete copings. There are iron steps on
either side and stone and metal bollards along the sides of the
chamber. Wooden gates to either end have metal reinforced
balance beams with metal handrails to top and rack and pinion
paddle mechanisms. To the side of each gate is a concrete
semi-circle with stepping stones. A much rebuilt leat runs to
the west of the chamber and returns to the canal below the
gates. Built as part of the Erewash Canal.
