Lock 86, Rochdale Canal (Manchester City Centre)
Lock 86, Rochdale Canal (Manchester City Centre)
Despite objections from boaters and conservationists, a glass fence was installed over the wall (like the lock, a listed building) following an accidental drowning. The glass fence can be seen in more recent photographs. But the stone block on the right of the lock landing was the only stepped access for boaters to reach the lock from Canal Street (the towpath), and British Waterways had to install pontoons to allow boaters to work the lock.
