One of the Cheddleton Locks on the canal. Taken from the stern of a narrowboat on the Froghall section of the Caldon Canal. For canal enthusiasts, you'll see that this lock is fitted with hydraulically operated paddles which are much easier and safer to use than the older gear, rack and pinion type.
