Rowner Lock
The Southernmost lock on the Wey and Arun Junction canal - home of the Baverstock Family throughout the life of the canal

Rowner Lock in 1800s

Then and 2002: Above Rowner Lock and cottage as the BAVERSTOCK family knew it. Below view over the partially restored lock in 2002 (Lock Cottage is long gone). Also view from where the cottage was, looking back over the bridge/ lock.

N.B. the above sketch was made from approx. where the electricity pylon (which spans the canal bed) is.
