SJ7065 : Waiting for Wardle Lock, Middlewich Branch

Waiting for Wardle Lock, Middlewich Branch
Waiting for Wardle Lock, Middlewich Branch
There are four locks in all on the Middlewich Branch, which fall from the Shropshire Union at Barbridge to the Trent and Mersey at Middlewich. Three of the locks are on the Middlewich Branch proper, but the last one, shown here, was technically part of the Trent and Mersey system, although not on the main line. Curiously this lock is called Wardle Lock - curious because Wardle is actually a village at the OTHER end of the Middlewich Branch! The bridge visible here is No 31.
