Knostrop Fall Lock No 3
Knostrop Fall Lock No 3
On the Aire and Calder Navigation at Thwaite Gate.
Aire and Calder Navigation
The Aire and Calder Navigation consists of a number of discrete sections of canalised river, which enable boats of a reasonable size to reach Leeds. The original intention was to give Leeds a proper ship canal like Manchester's but that never happened.

The extant sections are 7.6km parallel to the river Aire between Knowsthorpe (Knostrop) and just below Woodlesford, 1.1km downstream of the confluence of the Aire and Calder at Castleford, and the longest section, c.30 km from Ferrybridge down to Goole Docks where it joins the Ouse downstream of its confluence with the Aire.
