Lock 11 Dropgate will be placed across the lock here

When the restoration is completed, a Drop Gate will be at the end of the lock closest to you. A Drop Gate is type of lock gate that is hinged at the bottom. When a Drop Gate is open, it lays flat on the bottom of the lock. The spikes coming out of the left side of the lock are remnants of the original lock gate. The photo looks south. 5/29/04
