Keeper of the 16 locks

Close up of part of a Lock keeper's cottage which dates from 1805 and is nestled next to one of the 16 close together locks of the Peak Forest Canal at Marple. Taking part in Our World Tuesday.


  1. That must have been hard work looking after a flight of 16 locks

  2. I agree with Bill. Can you imagine having to open and close 16 locks manually? Wow.

  3. The most we've got here in the city is eight locks at one location.

    I like the small details to this shot.
