SE1039NE BINGLEY LEEDS AND LIVERPOOL CANAL

8/113 Five Rise Locks 9.8.66 with overflow channels

GV I

5-rise locks and overflow channel. c1773 by John Longbottom. Large dressed stone retaining walls with rebates for gates. 1st lock has widely splayed sloping wall to either side. Other locks have ramped walls to curved platforms approached up a flight of 15 stone steps to either side. Issuing at right angles from each lock are overflow channels which spill into a wider sloping channel to right which flows into canal at lower level to right of 1st lock.

The canal was authorised by an Act of 1768 and planned by James Brindley. This portion was the work of local masons and remains in virtually unaltered condition. These locks, including the 3, 2 and 1 Rise Locks (q q.v.), raise boats to a height of 120 feet and are perhaps the vast important flight of locks in the country, the 5-rise locks being one of the greatest feats of engineering of the canal age.
