SO8693 : The Bratch

taken 35 years ago, near to The Bratch, Staffordshire, Great Britain

The Bratch
The Bratch
This flight of locks is unusual in that it appears to be a staircase (multiple lock chambers with a single gate/pair of gates between each) but it is actually 3 separate locks built end to end. These locks are a popular spot with visitors and have been considerably titivated up since this picture was taken! See SO8693 : The Bratch '20 Years On'.
