Meaford House Lock No 32, Staffordshire
Meaford House Lock No 32, Staffordshire
The lock has been emptied to allow a narrowboat to proceed (behind the camera). The top gates of all four locks in the fight are leaking, and need some maintenance. Bridge No 97 ahead is a turnover bridge transferring the towpath from the left to the right of the waterway.

The Meaford flight consists of four locks north-east of Stone. The locks allow a rise of 32ft 5in (just under ten metres) in water level.

The Trent and Mersey Canal is 93.5 miles in length from Derwent Mouth to Preston Brook. The first sod was cut by Josiah Wedgwood in July 1766 at Middleport (Stoke-on-Trent) and the whole canal was open for business by 1777.
