Sidepond above Marple Locks No 13
Sidepond above Marple Locks No 13
The Marple flight consists of sixteen deep locks in a mile. The total fall (or rise) provided is 209ft 6in (almost 64 metres). The canal was opened to navigation by 1796 but not enough money remained to build these locks. A temporary tramway was installed and used until 1804, when the locks were completed.
The short pounds between Locks 13 to 16 include large open side ponds to assist with water management.
