Title

Lock number 10, Rochdale Canal - CBC00958

Description

Grade II



Lock. 1798 W. Jessop and W. Crossley engineers. Large dressed stone retaining walls with rebates for gates. Fitted with the facility for a double-set of bottom gates. Stone stairs to northern end leads to lower water level. The locks were designed to take craft 74' x 14'2" x 4' draft from the Manchester end. The idea of a double set of bottom gates was to take the 57' vessels of the Calder and Hebble, thus saving approximately 50 tons of water. There is no evidence to suggest that the intended double gates were fitted. K. Parry, Trans-Pennine Heritage, Hills, People and Transport, (London, 1981), p.64.
