1/233 Lock No. 10
Lock. 1798 W. Jessop and W. Crossley engineers. Large dressed stone retaining
walls with rebates for gates. Fitted with the facility for a double-set of
bottom gates. Stone stairs to northern end leads to lower water level. The
locks were designed to take craft 74' x 14'2" x 4' draft from the Manchester
end. The idea of a double set of bottom gates was to take the 57' vessels of
the Calder and Hebble, thus saving approximately 50 tons of water. There is
no evidence to suggest that the intended double gates were fitted. K. Parry,
Trans-Pennine Heritage, Hills, People and Transport, (London, 1981), p.64.
