SJ6832 : Tyrley Bottom Lock No 5, Staffordshire

taken 7 years ago, near to Market Drayton, Shropshire, Great Britain

Tyrley Bottom Lock No 5, Staffordshire
Tyrley Bottom Lock No 5, Staffordshire
There are five locks in the Tyrley flight, lowering the water level by a total of thirty-three feet (ten metres). The bottom lock and the canal below it are cut directly into the sandstone bedrock. Mature trees overshadow the area, the towpath side being almost constantly in shade.

The county boundary runs along the hedge/tree line to the left of the towpath, so although the whole canal and the locks are in Staffordshire all the land to the left is in Shropshire.
