Whitchurch Lock on the River Thames
Whitchurch Lock began life as a flash weir in 1580 and was converted to a wooden pound lock in 1787. The manual beams were removed in 1966 when the lock was converted to electro-hydraulic operation.
The Lock House is the only surviving one of its type - the arched window design is the same as when the house was built in 1829.
