SJ9850 : Oakmeadow Ford Lock

taken 13 years ago, near to Basford Green, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Oakmeadow Ford Lock
Oakmeadow Ford Lock
This is where the beautiful Caldon Canal joins the River Churnet for a short stretch. If the level indicator at the bottom of this lock (see the supplemental image for this square) shows anything higher than 6", then you can't proceed in a boat to Froghall along this stretch. The day we went, it was at 18"... so we didn't even attempt it! Photo taken at MR: SJ98885018 looking in a NW direction.
