UK Canal Path Photos: Part 3

The series continues.

Part 1
Part 2

Second manual lock section I came to.  These are operated by the maintenance staff of British Waterways.  Passage is by request (with significant notice).  The white truck on the hill is from British Waterways and is waiting for a boat to arrive.   Note the Catenary system to the right for one of the British Rail main lines.

If you look closely to the right of the canal you can see the mooring spots for boats waiting to go into the locks.  I didn't know there were locks at this spot until I came around the corner, they were quite well hidden.

Third lock, also operated by British Waterways.  Nobody coming when this was taken though so most likely a boat was coming from the Leeds area heading north, and the worker at the previous lock would drive up here to get it ready once the boat had past.
Until next time. If you would like larger copies of any of the pictures in this series please send me an email or add a comment and I will gladly provide.  All images are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License. -John
