The photo of this picturesque lock has “Watford?” written on the back, so it may be in Watford or somewhere else?  Do you recognise it?  We’d love to hear from you.

  • Personally, I would put money on this photo being of Boxmoor Bottom Lock. The building doesn’t exist anymore but the foundations are there still. The position of the lock’s surrounding area and steps looks exact to today’s layout.

  • Just to add detail. This lock was no.62 or Slaughter’s Lock.
