Lower Beveridges

Lower Beveridges Lock
Water pours gently over the upper gate of the Lower Beveridges Lock. Most locks don't feature water levels this high against the gate. Most have a "guard", a vertical clearance from the normal water level to guard against water overflowing the lock during spring flood. A separate weir (water control dam) is used to regulate water levels. At some locks such as Beveridges, no guard is used for the lock itself. Beveridges does have a weir, it is about a kilometre up the channel.

Note the osprey nest on the power pole in the background of the picture (left pole).
