Baddiley No 2 Lock near Wrenbury Heath, Cheshire
Baddiley No 2 Lock on the Llangollen Canal allows a rise (or fall) of 6ft 10in (about 21 metres).
Travelling north the short flight of three Baddiley Locks lowers the water level by 19ft 8in (about 5 metres).

The Llangollen Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal starts by the River Dee at Llantysilio and leads to the main line at Hurleston Junction, a distance of 46 miles, with twenty-one locks. Water is supplied from the River Dee to the canal, and on to Hurleston Reservoir, a source of domestic water supplies. This results in a noticeable flow of water from west to east; unusual in a canal.
The canal was started in 1795, but not completed for many years. It was eventually absorbed by the Shropshire Union Company in 1846.
