The lock at Alvingham was one of eight on the Louth Navigation which linked Louth to the sea near Tetney.

The canal was designed by John Grundy, and opened in 1770, remaining in use until 1924.

This view shows the unusual concave brick sections which make up the lock wall. This design enabled the walls to resist lateral ground pressure more effectively.

Alvingham watermill is close to the Louth Navigation about 3 miles north east of Louth (TF 367914).

It was built in the 17th century, with alterations being made in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The breast shot waterwheel, 11 feet in diameter, is driven by water taken from the nearby river Lud.

In the 1970s, the mill was restored to full working order.

There has been a mill on this site since the 12th century.
