New Moira Lock on the restored section of the Ashby Canal. On the right of the picture the water which appears to be flowing over the weir into the canal is being back pumped from below the lock.
Immediately above the new lock on the Ashby Canal at Moira. The weir on the left takes surplus water from above the lock through the bywash to the pound below the lock.
Ground paddle set into the recess above the top gates at Moira Lock so it is not fouled by the walkway when the gate is opened.
The Ashby Canal is considered a “narrow” canal today, that is one for narrow boats only. Indeed, the narrows at Marston Junction at the start will only allow narrowboats onto the canal.
The lower and intermediate gates have gate paddles at Moira Lock on the Ashby Canal.
