This meant we had to go through 'Monkey Marsh Lock', which is different - it does not have brick or stone side walls, they are turf.
The lock is longer and appears to be wider than others with a steel framework down the middle to keep the boats in place.

|Going down, revealing the vegetation|
|Now you can see the retaining boards at the bottom|
|And a nice empty mooring at Thatcham|
