Top Lock is close to the lock-keeper’s cottage where, in former times, the lock keeper lived.
Top Lock Cottage was also known as the barter store, as goods were traded between boaters. Later the cottage was used by Bath Humane Society to store rescue and resuscitation equipment to help people who fell into the canal.
