Audlem Lock

Shropshire Union Canal


Lock 13

Audlem Wharf
Shropshire Street
Crewe, CW3 0DX

Visitors are invited to see first-hand the works taking place to restore and repair lock 13. Take a look inside the drained lock and walk along the bottom of the lock chamber up to the temporary dam next to the by-wash weir.

Refreshments will be available to purchase nearby, and visitors will have the opportunity to speak to the Trust’s experts and volunteers.

The six week work programme will involve replacing the top single timber lock gate as well as making repairs to the brickwork and cill buffer. A temporary dam will be installed close to the by-wash weir so that expert engineers can inspect the full length of the lock approach and visitors can view the workings.
