Marlow Lock on the River Thames
Marlow's original prosperity was brought about by the Knights Templar who had a house at nearby Bisham and built the first bridge over the River Thames here.
Marlow Lock itself was built as a timber (fir wood) pound lock in 1773 and reconstructed in stone in 1825. In that same year, a new lock was built alongside the old one which was filled in. A private house now sits on the site of the original lock. The new lock was rebuilt by the Thames Conservancy in 1927 and it's this lock we see here today.
