User contributed information about Hertford Union Top Lock No 1
The lower balance beams of this lock are, unusually, made of solid cast-iron. Other than those at [[http://canalplan.eu/cgi-bin/gazetteer.cgi?where=Jesus%20Green%20Lock|Jesus Green Lock]] I can't find any other cast-iron balance beams on the British canal system.
