GO First Trading - News about the GO Ratchet Windlass

Visitors have the rare opportunity to walk on the bottom of a drained lock and get a close-up look at the giant lock gates and historic stonework. The weekends will give people a new perspective on their local canal heritage.It’s fascinating looking up at the giant oak lock gates and in some places you can even see the mason’s marks in the stonework from when the locks were built over 200 years ago.
