Historic Hand Operated Sluice Gates
Managed By: Icon Here Sluice Gate Operators
Description:
A collection of small sluice gates on waterways.
Expanded Description:
A sluice gate is traditionally made of wood which slides in grooves in the sides of the channel.
Sluice gates are used to control water levels and flow rates in waterways.
Raising a sluice gate allows water to flow under it. This can be done simply by turning a hand-operated, threaded bar.
The sluice gates we are looking for should rise and fall like a guillotine.
We are looking for small sluice gates on waterways that are too small for boats, about 3 to 5 ft wide. We are only accepting Sluice Gates on land where the public have the right to walk.

sluice 1

sluice 2
Waterway locks should be placed in the Waterway Locks, Planes and Lifts category.
