Description:
Northmoor Lock is a lock on the River Thames in Oxfordshire, England, on the northern bank about a mile from Northmoor.

The lock was built in 1896 by the Thames Conservancy to replace a flash lock at Hart's Weir, also known as Ridge's Weir, about a mile upstream.

The weir is just the other side of the lock island and is one of only two remaining complete paddle and rhymer (or rimer) manually operated weirs.

Access to the lock

The lock is remote from the village of Northmoor and some distance walk across country. The weir can be reached from Appleton, which is an equal distance away on the opposite bank.

Reach above the lock

Along the reach is the Hart's Weir Footbridge on the site of the old weir. Further along, the river is crossed by the 13th century Newbridge at the confluence of the River Windrush.

The Thames Path follows the northern bank to Newbridge, and then crosses over and continues on the south bank to Shifford. There it crosses again, over the old course of the river, to Shifford Lock and then crossed the lock cu towards Chimney Meadows.
