Carlsborg Upper Lock

Motala, Söderköping

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.

Formal name: Norrköping
Built: 1829-1830
Technical facts: The locks in Carlsborg are joined to each other. Carlsborg Upper Lock has a rise of 4.7 metres.
