Church Lawton
Church Lawton
Descending the "Heartbreak Hill" on the Trent and Mersey Canal at Church Lawton. In its heyday the canal was so busy that all the locks between Kidsgrove and Sandbach were duplicated to speed up the flow of traffic. For many years only one lock of each pair was kept usable but traffic levels have again reached the point at which both locks (where they both still exist) are again necessary.
