Selby Canal:  Haddlesey Flood Lock
Selby Canal: Haddlesey Flood Lock
THe boat on the left has just passed through (actually descended) Haddesley Flood Lock, which is sometimes, but not often, open at both ends. The purpose of the lock is to protect the Selby Canal from unusually high water levels in the (old) River Aire. Note the sign board for craft going the other way, which is to protect them from the ruins of Haddlesey Old Lock and its weir, which lie about 0.75 miles that way. But the knowledgeable boatman might turn left anyway, just to moor behind the 'Ing Inn' in Chapel Haddlesey, where food is obtainable 7/7 - thus saving a longish walk from the flood lock.
