Hulme Locks Branch

Looking from the top lock into the basin between the locks where boats turned through a right angle to pass through the lower lock under the arch of the railway viaduct.

Although there are lots of modern additions, like the paving, the underlying stonework looks like it’s been there for a long time at that level, rather than being around 1.8m (6′) lower if the two locks were both functional and similar rise/fall.
