Lock and lock gates. Circa 1797, Engineer John Rennie, work supervised by Richard Coates. Red brick in English Bond. Large granite coping stones and quoins. The wooden lock gates with iron hooks and chains and winding gear.
Two mills stood next to the lock, one for grinding corn and the other for making paper - hence the lock's name. One of 12 original locks (see 55th list for Maldon District: Langford, 3/6 and 3/7).
