Camden Lock is a double manually-operated lock on the Regent's Canal in Camden Town, London, England. The difference in water level is exceptionally large for a canal lock. Camden Town Lock is located in Camden Town, northwest London and is in the London Borough of Camden. The Lock itself is sandwiched between the junction of Chalk Farm Road and Camden High Street, before the turning of James Town Road. It has over the years become something of a tourist attraction, mainly due to its association with the Camden Street Market/Stables Markets and the various live music venues surrounding it. Though in recent years the Lock/bridge have become something of a drug peddler’s paradise.
