User contributed information about Swift Ditch Junction and Lock
Swift Ditch Lock was the first pound lock on the Thames, providing a much safer means of transit.\\Previously, river levels were maintained using paddle weirs which were opened and closed to allow boats to pass through.\\Downstream craft coasted through whilst upstream craft were winched through. Originally, the main Thames navigation was along Swift Ditch but this was abandoned in 1790 in favour of the current course through Abingdon.\\Info from EA.
