Three sets of locks on Shropshire’s Llangollen Canal are being upgraded and improved, thanks to a £100,000 winter works package by the Canal & River Trust.

The repairs are part of a £45m spent by the Trust to restore around 164 lock gates across the country together with repairs to aqueducts, reservoirs and tunnels.

The locks at Marbury, Quoisley and the three lock staircase at Grindley Brook are all receiving a make-over to keep them operational and in working order.

At Marbury, one of the old composite metal gates has been replaced with a new oak lock gate manufactured in the Trust’s own specialist heritage workshop in Bradley, near Wolverhampton. At Quoisley, a failed wall below the lock chamber is being restored, reinforcing the canal channel.

And at the landmark three-lock staircase at Grindley Brook, each lock chamber is being improved with repairs to the gates, posts and chamber walls, including a new gate at the bottom.
