NORTH AND SOUTH ANSTON CHESTERFIELD CANAL
5/61 Turnerwood Flight of
locks between Turnerwood
Bridge and Turnerwood
Lock at Cinder Hill
Flight of canal locks. Late C18, some altered. For the Chesterfield Canal
Company. Rubble and ashlar limestone, brick linings. 6 single locks all 2.1
metres in width. Generally the locks have stone entry and exit walls with brick
linings to the locks proper, some with ashlar course visible near low water
line; ashlar lock-gate recesses (gates removed) have hollow-quoined heel-post
housings; stone edgings removed. Although in poorer condition than the Thorpe
Flight of locks to west of Turnerwood Bridge these locks contribute to the sequence of structures on an unspoilt section of waterway in the parishes of Thorpe Salvin and North and South Anston. The canal was surveyed by James Brindley and built between 1771 and 1777 under the supervision of John Varley and Hugh Henshall. Linked Chesterfield with Stockwith to gain access to east waterways. Names and numbers of locks given in:
The Chesterfield Canal, preservation society booklet, 1981.
