KEDDINGTON SOUTH COCKERINGTON TF 38 NE ROAD (north side) Willows Lock 8/30 TF 352892 15.4.85 II

Lock. 1767, by John Grundy. Red brick, limestone ashlar dressings, some timber and cast iron. Lock chamber walls of 4 concave brick sections on each side with timber post between them which are partially hidden by large ashlar blocks. The tops are coped with similar ashlar blocks. At either end the exposed timber beams survive where the original lock gates would have hung, likewise some of the cast iron fittings. The end sections of the embankment slope downwards to curved ends and contained arched brick openings for over shoots. Navigation abandoned in 1924.

This lock is referred to as Carrotts Lock in N Wright, A Guide to the Indus- trial Archaeology of Lincolnshire p.21.
