Carlsborg Lower Lock

Motala, Söderköping

The lockkeeper's cottage was built between 1898 and 1999. Three generations of the Ringström family lived and worked here in Carlsborg, starting with Johan Melcher Ringström in 1881 and ending with Dag Eilert Ringström in 1979. By then, the Ringström family had been in charge of the lock for 98 years.

Formal name: Skandinavien/Scandinavia
Built: 1829-1831
Technical facts: The lock is hydraulically operated, like most of the other locks.
