Bottisham Sluice

I happened to be in Waterbeach (bech is OE stream or valley, there's no beach here) and wandered over to see the Bottisham Sluice being maintained by DEFRA.
Soon Patience will be heading this way on her way south. The electrically driven guillotine locks are common hereabouts, with tidal rivers, rather than the more traditional winched locks elsewhere in the country.
