River Medway - Stoneham Lock (Disused)
« Reply #1 on: November 05, 2014, 08:26:47 »
Stoneham Lock is sited on the Medway between Yalding and Branbridges. When the commercial barge traffic on the river ceased in the 1950's the lock was considered unnecessary and the gates and machinery removed to save on costs and repairs. The lock chamber still remains and any river craft still need to pass through it in order to navigate the river today
