Sluice on the Maud Foster Drain. 1807 by John Rennie with later minor C20 alterations. Gritstone sahlar, iron and wood. Sluice with 3 elliptical archways, 2 projecting faceted piers to each side, coped parapet walls, with band. To both sides are sloping splayed retaining walls with returns. The iron bound timber sluice gates are retained and operational by a gantry-mounted pulley system. The piers are support to later access walkways and the parapet walls are surmounted by later steel balustrading. The sluice was constructed as part of a comprehensive scheme to reclaim the East, West, and Wildmore Fens, between 1803 and 1813. (Bagley GS: Boston, Its Storey and People: Boston: 1986-).
