A small stone bridge spans the scale of locks at the level of the second lock upstream. During the construction of the Briare canal, between 1604 and 1611, Hugues Cosnier engineer provides six locks contiguous in Rogny. A seventh lock is added subsequently by the Lords of the canal company. After the 1822 Act, the sas of the locks were widened and lengthened to 30.40 x 5.20 meters. In 1834, estimated that a boat crosses the sept ecluses Rogny in two hours and the bright engineer proposes to establish mobile locks to ensure the simultaneous passage of two vessels in less than a quarter of an hour. Finally, this project is not realized and scaling of Rogny is supplanted in 1887 by a new race comprising six spaced locks. In 1895, other engineers, Lavollée and Heurtault, are studying the possibility of establishing a lock single large drop for Rogny site. This project has also no suite.
