    "Sir M Barlow" is Sir Montague Barlow.

    The title card identifies the location for this clip as being "Stoke". More correctly, the location is Stoke Bardolph, Nottinghamshire.

    The date of the opening of the lock was 9 October 1923.

    Here's a vintage photograph of the day's events.....
