Granite lock located at the lower end of the Hackney Canal built between 1841-43. It held two barges end to end and raised the water level 1.14 metres. In the 1970s a flood prevention barrier and sluice were constructed within the lock chamber, obscuring most of its structure. The southern entrance to the lock remains visible, as does the north end which lies within Newton Abbot Racecourse. None of the gates survive although one was noted by Ewans (1977) and may still be visible at the lowest tide.


Harris, H., 1994, The Haytor Granite Tramway and Stover Canal (Monograph). SDV341541.

Tidal lock. Held two barges in tandem. Outer end visible but now modern barrier and sluice in position to prevent flooding.
