Cambridge in HDR – Jesus Lock

Another two images of the Jesus lock on the river Cam in Cambridge. Locks are used to raise or lower boats between stretches of water of different levels. The Jesus lock was built in the late 19th century and is now maintained by Conservators of the River Cam, the navigation authority for the River Cam established in 1702.

Looking down the lock. The water inside the lock is at a higher level

The lock is on the right of the picture just beyond the island. The broad stretch of river in the centre flows by a mini-waterfall due to differences in level.
