- Church of St Peter and St Paul
Canal lock on the disused Stover Canal. 1824 for George Templer of Stover House
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 1790-1792; the engineer was Thomas Gray of Exeter. Granite ashlar.
Splayed entrances at north and south ends. Revetment walls recessed for lock
gates. Remains of later gates.
The Stover Canal was nearly 2 miles long and joined the River Teign 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 local ball clay to the Staffordshire Potteries and later to transport
Haytor granite after the Haytor granite tramway had been built in 1820.
