St. Pancras Lock

The St. Pancras lock is located on the Regent's Canal and is one stop for narrowboats along the canal. It has a drop of 8 feet and is situated next to the Camsley Street Natural Park. This lock uses the same mitre locks that were first designed by Leonardo da Vinci and also displayed in the museum as a miniature version.

In 1939, stop locks were installed in the event to prevent damage from the possibility of a bombing. Although they were installed, the Regent's Canal was never hit by bombs from WWII, despite being one of many targets in London.
