Bow Locks (No20) is a set of bi-directional locks in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The locks link the tidal Bow Creek to the River Lee Navigation which is a canalised river. These locks were first built in 1850 and then rebuilt in 1930, at the same time as the Prescott Channel was cut nearby. At high tide, the tide from Bow Creek used to flow through Bow Locks to raise the level of the canals, such as the Limehouse Cut. But in 2000 these locks were modified to keep the tide out; to reduce silting in the canal system.
In 2004–05, British Waterways refurbished the historic footbridge over Bow Locks.
