Hulme Locks Branch Bottom Lock Gates

The top gates of the bottom lock of the Hume Locks Branch are all that’s holding back all the water in the Bridgewater Canal, and more.  The lower lock gates have drifted open and all sorts of rubbish and driftwood from the River Irwell  is wedged in them so they couldn’t be closed quickly.
