Geldeston Lock


The Geldeston Lock was built around 1670 to enable trading wherries to reach Bungay and is one of only two on the Broads system. Closed in 1934 and slowly deteriorating since then, the Beccles group together with the Inland Waterways Association began a restoration project in 2013.

The locks are on the site of an excellent local pub, The Geldeston Locks Inn, which is now community-owned.
