Blue Pits Top Lock, Castleton, Rochdale, Lancashire.
When the Rochdale Canal was built in the latter part of the eighteenth century, the nearby village, now known as Castleton, was called Blue Pits, hence the name of this lock, which is right in the centre of Castleton and adjoins the railway station, (behind the photographer). The spire of St. Martin's Church is visible, (left background).
