Ebley Flood Gates - Overview

This was part of the Cotswold Canal Restoration on the Stroudwater Navigation and the Thames and Severn Canal.

Hargreaves Lock Gates were working with Stroud District Council, the contractors Galliford Try and engineers Halcrow. Once the concrete flood channel was completed we were able to install the single pair of flood gates.

The gates were manufactured in PEFC™ certified Oak, were 3.5 metres x 3.5 metres and weighed 1.5 tonnes each. The installation was safely completed in 4 days and much credit should be given to local contractor Ellis Cranes for their help with this.
