Southstoke: Somersetshire Coal Canal locks
Southstoke: Somersetshire Coal Canal locks
Three of the nineteen Combe Hay flight of locks on the Somersetshire Coal Canal. These climb round the narrow valley known as the ‘Bull’s Nose’ by Rowley Farm. Looking north west by the parallel public footpath. The locks replaced an inclined plane, itself an unsuccessful alternative to Robert Weldon’s doomed caisson lock. In the 19th century coal from mines at Paulton and Timsbury went east by barge through these locks to towns such as Melksham, Chippenham and Trowbridge
