SD 91 SW ROCHDALE ROCHDALE CANAL
7/93 Lock No. 50
(Moss Lower Lock)
Lock between 1794 and 1804. William Jessop, engineer.
Dressed stone. Lock was designed to accommodate two sets of
lower gates (ie for two lengths of boat); the recesses
remain but only the lower gates were ever fitted. It was
heightened by two courses at some stage. The mouth has a
cast iron lipping. The lock gates have been completely
overhauled but the winding gear is not in place.
