Canal Locks Gallery

Transfer through the locks has now been significantly reduced (1980 – 2016) following cessation of coal mining operations and re-routing of the sand and gravel barges.   Added to this petroleum for some reason is now brought to the holding tanks at Fleet Lane by road tanker instead of by canal. 

These days the transfers are made by narrow boats and other pleasure craft – still absorbing to watch the process of the transfers.
