SE1416 : Derelict Lock 2E, Huddersfield Narrow Canal

taken 43 years ago, near to Huddersfield, Kirklees, Great Britain

Derelict Lock 2E, Huddersfield Narrow Canal
Derelict Lock 2E, Huddersfield Narrow Canal
This picture was taken well before restoration of this section of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal commenced and shows the original Lock 2E with its original gates but in a derelict condition. Just beyond here the canal passes under Queen Street bridge beyond which the original route was obstructed by the buildings of Bates & Co. When the canal was restored in 2000-2001 the level of the canal beyond the lock in the picture was lowered so as to pass through a newly constructed tunnel under the obstruction and a new lock 2E was built beyond. The chamber walls of the original lock 2E remain to this day however now boats simply sail through and into the deep cutting beyond.

The buildings on the right have long since been demolished whilst those on the left have been turned into upmarket flats and university halls of residence. Notably the building in the centre of the picture has been re-roofed and lost its gable end.
