Site of the Aubois (canal latéral à la Loire) lock, French Heritage monument to Marseille les aubigny
The site consists of a lock with and a canal to the suite, a fixed bridge on lock and a lock House. The sas lock originally measured 30 x 5.20. It was expanded at the very end of the 19th century (template Freycinet) at 38.50 x 5.20 m. the Canal allows the channel to span the Aubois River. It is a masonry work 25 metres long and composed of three arches of 4 meters wide each. The masonry Bowl presents 5.20 m wide (a boat Lane). The lock House features eclusieres side canal houses in the Loire: a basement with an oven, a ground floor consisting of two parts, and attics. The lock with the lock House, and the Aubois Canal are built at the time of the canal lateral to the Loire (1822-1838). The aqueduct is built following a draft dated 1829 and written by regular engineer Vaugulin (spelling uncertain) and by the engineer Chief Lejeune.Un the Canal reconstruction project in 1939 does not. In 1868, a trial, is applied to L'aubois lock a system devised by Mr. de Cagayan to save the volume of water needed for the locks. The principle is to use the work of the fall during filling and emptying of the sas to raise water to the lower reach in the sas or SAS in the upper reach. Nothing remains of this facility. In 1892, the engineers are planning to establish a pool of savings close to the lock of the Aubois. On the lock, a metal swing bridge is built in 1893 on plans drawn by the engineers Sigault and JEM. This book no longer exists.
