Ltd. Cast-iron with granite steps. Comprises 2 girder
cantilever sections, partially latticed, each of which is 13m
in length. 3 curved stone steps at each end.
Built when the Greenland Lock and Greenland Dock were enlarged

permit the passage of ships from the River Thames to the
Greenland Dock. It was refurbished, together with its
accompanying hydraulic machinery, in 1987.
