Restoration of Baylham Lock

Following the successful completion of their work at Creeting, the IWA branch decided around 2006 to move downstream, and started work at Baylham. There had been some clearance work by the IWA in 1995. Note the lock gates, with paddles, were still there, but in poor shape


Work Continued by the newly formed River Gipping Trust

Work was started around 2006 by the local IWA branch, but when the Trust was formed in May 2007 they took over the restoration work, although the volunteers doing the work were the same people. The fully restored lock (apart from gates) was completed by the River Gipping Trust in 2011.

Fully Restored 

Now fully restored, awaiting lock gates
