Lock 5 is located in Wellington and is a fully restored lock that connected Fletcher’s Lake to the Shubenacadie Grand Lake. When the lock operated there would have been a dam in the stream to the east of the lock which would have raised the water level sufficiently high to allow boats to enter the upper end of the lock, on their way to Grand Lake.


Lock 5 is one of Canada's Historic Places.
