SE3900 : Former entrance to Hemingfield Basin

taken 3 years ago, near to Elsecar, Barnsley, Great Britain

Former entrance to Hemingfield Basin
Former entrance to Hemingfield Basin
Marked by masonry corner blocks, some copper leaves and a modern handrail on the towpath. Built to transfer coal from Hemingfield Colliery onto the Elsecar Branch of the Dearne & Dove Canal. The canal had opened by 1798, at least 30 years before any railway competition. It closed to traffic [due to mining subsidence] in 1928. It was officially closed in 1961. The towpath is well used by walkers and cyclists and a local group is keen to restore the canal.
