Bottom Lock Bridge

Following on from our recent photograph of Engineer Wharf viewed from a train on the railway viaduct between Romiley and Marple, is Bottom Lock Change Bridge.

From here the Peak Forest Canal, having been carried over the valley of the river Goyt on an aqueduct, progresses through the Marple Locks, a series of 16 locks and one of the steepest flights in the country.

Note: this photograph was taken in 2009.

  1. The bridge must be very old and is absolutely unified with the country...The water reflection is perfect...

  2. A great catch, showing a very english landscape!

  3. «Louis» wishes he could see this in person. He enjoys your series showing the complex system of locks and canals that still exist there. A fine contribution to Sunday Bridges!

  4. Beautiful country. So green and lush. - Margy
