West Deeping, Stamford Canal Lock
The Stamford Canal passed through West Deeping a few yards north of the church and close by West Deeping Mill (fed by a branch of the river Welland).
Here, on what is now private property, are several surviving elements of a lock.
Stone was used to support the gates at either end but the sides of the lock were earthen banks.
