Full Description

At c. SK 414272 are the remains of one of only two locks constructed between Shardlow and Burton on Trent. The other, near Burton, has disappeared. The lock at Weston on Trent was initially a wooden flash lock of c. 1699. It was subsequently converted to a wooden pound lock by 1731 and rebuilt in stone in 1762 at a cost of £850. Photographs taken in 1976 and 1991 show how the remains had deteriorated over that period. (1) [Possibly now just outside Derbyshire]
