This plaque records the improving of the lock by members of the
Inland Waterways Association for the National Rally of Boats

Below this is a metal sign with the name of the lock almost completely obliterated by the vandal's paint.
This was the state of things on 9th April 2013. It is possible that it has all been cleaned up by now. I hope so.
