Brunel Saw Mill Canal Lock, 1812-14
Scheduled Ancient Monument
During the Napoleonic Wars the Dockyard needed ever larger supplies of timber for shipbuilding and repair. To satisfy this increased demand the Navy built one of Britain's first steam powered timber saw mills here.
Designed by Sir Marc Isambard Brunel, an important Georgian engineer and father of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the new Saw Mill was connected to the South Mast Pond by canal. The canal was used to transport logs through a tunnel to the Saw Mill. The canal joined the South Mast Pond at this entrance lock - rediscovered by archaeologists in 2008 and re-excavated in 2014.
