Sawley Locks No 2

I am trying to find a list of lock keepers in order to find my maternal grandfather who was the keeper around the 1920's or 1930's. I do not have his Christian name but his surname was Worthington. He worked for the water authority but became disabled in some way and was given a lighter job. His wife was named Claire and her maiden name was Cooper. After my grandfather died his widow (my grandmother) lived in a cottage in Sawley which has long been redeveloped. I remember visiting her on lots of occasions and it was always a treat to walk down to the lock house.

Thank you for any help
