Freestone Lock (derelict)

Freestone Lock, two miles northeast of Newtown, marks the end of the in-water section of the Montgomery Canal.


It's a shame seeing the rubbish in there, but it could be a lot worse. The structure looks sound - a bit of cleaning up and some lock gates and it'd be as good as new. Mind you, there wouldn't be much point using it unless the currently dry canal can be restored to Newtown.


The tail bridge is also somewhat overgrown.

What a shame that both the canal and the lock are out of use.
