The top lock of the Hulme Locks Branch was crossed by a swing footbridge and the semi-circle shows where it swung.

There are no lower gates for the top lock, although the gate recesses can be clearly seen.  The lock was operational, with a smaller rise/fall that the lower lock, in the 1930s and the stonework has been built up level since then.
