Every winter the Canal & River Trust shut parts of the network down for a time in order to do maintenance which often includes taking out broken or old lock gates and replacing them. New lock gates are not something you can just order in from Amazon, so the CRT have to make their own and in this video I visited their Birmingham workshop to see how the process works.
