Beside the lock is the old lock keeper's cottage.
The Water Rail Way passes across the bridge to the right - a 33 mile foot and cycle route connecting Boston and Lincoln.
Local signage states :-
"Anton's Gowt is the gateway to the Witham Navigable Drains - a network of channels dug in the 1600s which criss-cross the fens north of Boston.
The word 'gowt' means the outlet of a drain or watercourse.
Anton's Gowt is named after Sir Anthony Thomas, an entrepreneur who financed a scheme of local drainage improvements in the 1630s"
