Northmoor Lock on the River Thames
Northmoor Lock - the seventh on the River Thames - is one of the latest to be built along the river, constructed as it was in 1896 and replacing the ancient Hart's and Ark flash weirs. It is located just east of the beautiful Cotswolds, near Lambourn Downs.
Although a 'recent' lock, Northmoor follows the early pattern of manually-operated wood beam pound locks. Interestingly, its associated weir is one of only three on the Thames that are still operated using only paddles and rymers.
