Spruced Up Sluice Gates


The sluice gates on the Peak Forest Canal have been spruced up and cleaned out.

See how it looked in February 2008 with barbed wire on top of the graffiti-covered brick wall hiding Automasters Engineering Works.

Now behind the low railings are new homes.

See also how it looked last September on Geograph when the sluice was clogged up with algae.

For the Eastward view along the canal see Hyde DP Xtra.

Looks a lot smarter Gerald!

Out of interest, have they given the new houses any access onto the towpath?
