Works at Lock 3 on the Stourbridge Canal are running for four weeks from 20 Feb to the 17 March. All three gates are being replaced having been working hard for boaters since 1990 - both bottom end gates and the top end single gate will be replaced. The team will also be fixing any damaged bricks and stones in and around the lock and will be extending the lock ladder.

During the open day, visitors will be able to come along and walk in the drained lock chamber on the original brickwork and learn about the essential works here from the Trust’s experts.  People will also be able to take a look inside one of our Heritage Working Boats to see what life was like for canal workers.
