SJ8390 : Mersey flood control

taken 11 years ago, near to Gatley, Manchester, Great Britain

Mersey flood control
Mersey flood control
In the Didsbury/Northenden area high levees have been constructed to contain the River Mersey and prevent flooding. At times, however, it becomes necessary to flood designated areas hereabouts to stop the river over topping its banks or to control flooding further downstream. These sluice gates (and another set further upstream at Didsbury) control the water flow into and out of the flooded land at these times. ( See also SJ8390 : Mersey flood control and M60 embankment)
