    Thanks, Tom, I suppose that they had to acknowledge the river that made Liverpool great! Any idea if the lock was patented?

    Thanks,Martin.

    They named another lock Medway but I donít think they patented anything because that would be a bit too easy for the Russians and Chinese to copy.

    Thanks again, another M-----named lock, "Medway" of which I had not heard! Amazingly there is a church, St Peter and St Paul, at Aylesford, overlooking the Medway, which has inside an ancient monument dedicated to the local Milner family! Did they know about that at Liverpool?

    Was the Medway a precursor to the Mersea, or a simpler form? Are there any other locks in the "M"series! They escape mention in the "High-Security Mechanical Locks" tome!

    Many thanks,
    Martin
