Hulme Lock, Bridgewater Canal, Manchester
Hulme Lock, Bridgewater Canal, Manchester
This lock dropped boats from the Bridgewater Canal to the River Irwell (and to the Manchester Ship Canal). The River Medlock enters the Irwell next to the bottom gates. The railway viaducts above carry the line from Liverpool to Manchester Oxford Road, and the Metrolink trams. This lock is now disused, a new lock at Pomona connecting the Bridgewater with Salford Quays.
