Berkhamsted Middle Lock No 54

Hi, My pictures of lock 55 taken in 1999 and both Tim Lewis and Chris Bushills's pictures in 2006 show the top lock gates to be steel with twin paddles. However, Nic Chilton's picture in 2007 seems to show them to be the old wooden gates with no paddles. Am I missing something, or did they replace the new steel gates back to the old wood ones?
E-Mail me at stevet2@ntlworld.com with any thoughts please.
