SK1514 : Boat waiting to enter Common Lock

taken 10 years ago, near to Orgreave, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Boat waiting to enter Common Lock
Boat waiting to enter Common Lock
The rise at this lock, just 4'6", is unusually small. It is interesting to speculate whether a couple of feet extra rise at Bagnall Lock 3/4 mile downstream (5'7"), and at Hunt's Lock 1/2 mile upstream (5'8") would have saved the need for this lock.
