01/07/83 bollards and capstans
(Formerly Listed as:
Lock, reconstructed for 3rd time 1894-1904. By Sir John Wolfe
Barry, engineer. Brick-lined with granite kerbs and iron
bollards and capstans.
Lock gates worked by hydraulic rams acting directly on the
gates, an early use of this principle in Britain. The
machinery preserved in situ. The raised lip at edge of granite
lockside coping is a safety measure used previously at
Liverpool. The hydraulic mechanisms were supplied in 1898 by
Sir WG Armstrong, Mitchell and Co Ltd.
