The “Hidden Lock” in Cydach – Progress Report, March 2024

The “Hidden Lock” in Cydach – Progress Report, March 2024

Gill luckily was passing the Buried Lock in Clydach as some of the culvert was being pulled out. What is let of the original 1798 lock wall is in good condition but, sadly, most of the walls were not conserved when the lock was buried.

It is truly wonderful to see major work underway on Phase Two of the restoration project. Our vision for a fully functioning Clydach Lock No. 7 is one step closer to reality.

Funded by The Shared Prosperity Fund that is part of the UK Government’s levelling-up agenda, and is administered by Swansea Council.
