Penton Hook Lock

My parents Mrs Katharine "Kay" McLaglen a jazz pianist, and her husband Clifford McLaglen, a retired Actor and soldier of two world wars, in his 70's, lived in "Lock Ahoy" on the south side of the river at the top of the weir at Penton Hook Lock; Laleham Reach; Staines. I saw the Edwardian Summer house still standing in the late 2010, but wonder if it was swept away by the floods. I had stayed there with my little girl of eight months in 1967 to 68 and loved the river and all the goings on in the summer. We had a huge picture window so it was like watching television. Does anyone know what happened to "Lock Ahoy"? Cynthia Allen McLaglen

Wikipedia has a page about Penton Hook Lock

Penton Hook Lock is the sixth lowest lock of forty four on the non-tidal reaches of the River Thames in England. It faces an island which was until its construction a pronounced meander (a hook) and is on the site of its seasonal cutoff. It is against the left bank marking the church parish medieval border of Laleham and Staines upon Thames in Surrey for many centuries. Until 1965 their county was Middlesex. At 266 ft (81 m) it is the third longest lock on the river.

A bend 900 m upstream of the lock, Silver Sands, hosts Staines Regatta in the sport of rowing annually. On the opposite bank in Thorpe is Penton Hook Marina which occupies lakes once land used for gravel extraction.
