Lock and bridges
Lock number 3 of 7 (descending) of the Tinsley flight. There is a concrete arched footbridge, and a yellow pipe bridge that carries oxygen - see SK3989 : Oxygen pipe to Sheffield's steel industry.. The lock lies on the gridline - other photos of the lock are in SK3989.
Sheffield and Tinsley Canal
The Sheffield and Tinsley Canal was opened in 1814 to carry boats between the navigable River Don at Tinsley and a new basin close to the heart of Sheffield. Before this date, goods had to be carried over poor roads to Tinsley Wharf on the River Don. LinkExternal link
