This lock is at the half way point in the journey along the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation from Chelmsford to the coast. The navigation has 12 locks and 6 bridges all dating from the 1790's. It was completed in 1797 and enabled goods, mostly coal, bricks and timber, to be carried by barge instead of horse drawn wagons from the sea to Chelmsford.
