Wikipedia has a page about Shifford Lock
Shifford Lock is a lock on the River Thames in England. It is in the centre of a triangle formed by the small villages of Shifford, Duxford and Chimney in Oxfordshire. It is at the start of a navigation cut built with the lock by the Thames Conservancy in 1898. It replaced a flash lock in a weir about 3/4 mile downstream.
There is a small weir beside the lock and a larger weir on the old course of the river upstream at the top of the lock cut.
