Plaque, Kings Road lock gates (1)
Plaque, Kings Road lock gates (1)
Iíve walked past these gates many times, see SE3724 : Aire & Calder Navigation, Kings Road Lock, and today, in bright sunshine, I noticed this plaque affixed to the beam, indicating that the gates were replaced in 1995, built at the British Waterways workshops in Stanley Ferry. See SE3523 : British Waterways workshop
The oak gates have a life of approximately 25 years.
