The lock, with a lift of 20 metres (66 ft.), is said to be the world's highest. The lock is operated during the Trent-Severn Waterway season, May through October, as canal traffic warrants. A film about the waterway and the construction of the lock can be seen at the Peterborough Lift Lock Visitor Centre.
