near to Market Drayton, Shropshire, Great Britain

Approaching Tyrley Locks, Shropshire Union Canal, Staffordshire
Approaching Tyrley Locks, Shropshire Union Canal, Staffordshire
Tyrley Locks are approached along a deep cutting through the sandstone. Heavily shaded by overhanging trees and bushes, the canal here is narrow, and passing boats need to take special care.The bottom lock (No 5) can be seen in the distance, and a narrow boat, having descended the very pleasantly situated flight of five, has many miles of lock-free cruising to anticipate!
