Sluice Weir Lock - River Medway
« Reply #1 on: December 19, 2014, 09:21:29 »
Situated on the river between Yalding and East Peckham, this lock was originally built by the Medway Navigation Company in the 1740's and has been re-furbished several times since. There's a WWII Type 24 pillbox guarding it on the left bank
