The busiest lock on the Canal Du Midi, due to its central location (source).  The next lock downstream from here is 54 Km away in Beziers.  This 54 Km long part of the canal is called the Grand Bief, and it is the longest part without locks on the canal.

 

The lock-keeper also runs a small store at this location, selling items such as drinks, jams, and ice cream.
