Middle Lock at Fradley, Staffordshire
Middle Lock at Fradley, Staffordshire
Trent and Mersey Canal.
There are five locks in the flight, this being the second one down rather than the middle one. The drop in water level is 7ft 6in (about 2.3 metres). The canal was built between 1766 and 1777, engineered initially by James Brindley who died in 1772. The section here between Shugborough and Derwent Mouth was already up and running by 1770.
