Stockton Brook Top Lock, looking east towards Endon , Cheddleton and Froghall.

This is on the Caldon Canal, Lock No 8. The flight of five locks at Stockton Brook, changing the water level by a total of 41ft 1in (12.5 metres). Railway Lock is the middle one of the five.

The Caldon Branch of the Trent and Mersey Canal opened in 1779. It runs eighteen miles from Etruria in Stoke-on-Trent, where it leaves the Trent and Mersey Canal. It terminates at Froghall about five miles south-east of Cheddleton. The canal has seventeen locks and the 69 metre long very low Froghall Tunnel, unusable by many narrowboats. The canal did originally continue through to Uttoxeter, but the section beyond Froghall was closed by the late 1840s, much of its course being filled in to construct a railway. The Leek Branch opened in 1797.
