Bid to install new decorative lock gates on Newport canal

Written on May 23, 2021

An application to install new decorative lock gates on Newport’s canal says it will “re-emphasise the importance” of the structure within the town.

The Shrewsbury & Newport Canals Trust (SNCT) and Newport Town Council (NTC) hope the gates, which would be placed near Roving Bridge at the lock known as Newport Lock – 255m southeast of Wrekin View Farm – will add to the rich heritage of the area.

The application submitted to Telford & Wrekin Council would allow the decorative locks to be fixed in the open position and will not “disturb” historic stonework at the site.

A design and access statement submitted with the application says the gates set to be used have already been donated by the Canal & River Trust.
