History of the lock
All  the canal company's cottages were subject to special housing regulations. For those living in lockkeepers' cottages, the company paid all the costs of necessary repairs. However, the lockkeeper was to contribute a certain amount of labour and if any of the inhabitants in the cottage caused damage through neglect or carelessness, the lockkeeper himself had to pay for the repairs.
