Standing in the shadow of the bridge that now passes above it Lock 13 is often overlooked. However this lock features a bypass flume with stonework that is in exceptionally good condition. As well as being well preserved this is the only lock below Seneca that shows no evidence of having had masonry culverts around the upper gate pockets.
