Entrance to Beeston Lock
Entrance to Beeston Lock
Just after Beeston Marina, from where this photo was taken, the River Trent flows over Beeston Weir, forcing boats through Beeston Lock and along Beeston Canal if they wish to continue towards Nottingham. The view shows the float barrier which stops boats going over the weir in the centre of the picture. The entrance to Beeston Lock is towards the left - the lock itself is just in front of the white-washed lock-keeper's cottage. The canal towpath is very popular with cyclists, walkers and joggers, and provides a welcome break at lunchtimes for workers on nearby industrial sites.
