Canal Overflow above Bosley Lock 12, Macclesfield Canal, Cheshire
Canal Overflow above Bosley Lock 12, Macclesfield Canal, Cheshire
After heavy rain the overflow down the locks can be considerable so a wooden barrier has been placed across the overflow to prevent narrow-boats leaving lock 12 being sucked towards it, which could cause unintended ramming of the tow-path stonework under the bridge.
