Wikipedia has a page about Northmoor Lock

Northmoor Lock is a lock on the River Thames in Oxfordshire, England, on the northern bank about a mile from Northmoor.

The lock was built in 1896 by the Thames Conservancy to replace a flash lock at Hart's Weir, also known as Ridge's Weir, about a mile upstream and another at Ark Weir downstream. The lock house, lock and weir are relatively little changed since they were built and they can be viewed as a group from the Thames Path and from the river

The weir is just the other side of the lock island and is one of only two remaining complete paddle and rhymer (or rimer) manually operated weirs. It is thought that there are no other such weirs in the world.
