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

The lock has a rise/fall of 3 ft 6 in (1.07 m).[1]

It is a grade II listed building.[2] The brick walls are capped with Bath Stone and are wider at the top than at the base in an attempt to counteract frost damage.[3]
