Hungerford Marsh Lock

Hungerford Marsh Lock is a lock on the Kennet and Avon Canal, at Hungerford, Berkshire, England.

Hungerford Marsh Lock was built between 1718 and 1723 under the supervision of the engineer John Hore of Newbury. The canal is administered by British Waterways. The lock has a rise/fall of 8 ft 1 in (2.46 m).

This lock is unique compared to others on the Kennet & Avon canal in that it has a swing bridge directly over the centre of the lock that must be opened before the lock may be used.
