The de-gated Ufton Lock.

Ufton Lock was a lock on the Kennet and Avon Canal, between Aldermaston Wharf and Sulhamstead, Berkshire, England.

The canal is now administered by the Canal & River Trust.[1]

The rise and fall was a mere 1 ft 9 in (0.5 m).[2] During restoration in the 1970s, the lock gates were removed and the lock upstream (Towney Lock) was deepened to cope with the new water levels.[3]
