I'm reasonably sure that it is the canal near Tinsley flight.

That is surely not the same building.

In the painting - a single tower with different windows, different scale. On the bend of a waterway. Access via an external stairway.

Lock House - the castellated end to a longer building, at right angles to a straight lock. No sign of an external stairway.

Thinking about how companies used to often adopt a "corporate" style, for example railway companies used similar designs for all their stations, perhaps the canal company built other lock keepers lodges in a similar style further down the canal. Perhaps the building is somewhere else in South Yorkshire.
