Ticklepenny Lock is one of the deepest locks on the system, named after a local family of smallholders, lock keepers and collector of tolls. The locks are without their doors but all the ironwork and masonry is still intact.
|The canal meanders it's way toward Ticklepenny Lock on it's way|
|This shows how deep this lock is, the water would have been a lot deeper but since the|
canal was abandoned the levels have been deliberately lowered.
Also here, we see a better example of the Barrel shaped construction of the lock.
|On the opposite side of the road bridge the canal drops down a yard or so.|
|Here we see the canal passing below the road bridge.|
|Original iron work, but all the gates were removed after the closure of the canal to|
make use of the timbers. All the swing bridges were removed and replaced with
permanent road bridges.
|I got down to the water level to show the depth of this lock. No, I didn't get wet.|
