Bosley locks receive a facelift
Cheshire’s flight of 12 locks at Bosley on the Macclesfield Canal has been given a £240,000 facelift by the Canal & River Trust.
Tasks completed have included replacing or re-lining worn-out lock gates, installing new paddles, replacing missing stonework and repairing damaged ironwork.
The 26-mile Macclesfield Canal was opened in 1831 and connects the Peak Forest Canal with the Trent & Mersey Canal and is part of the Cheshire Ring.
“The Macclesfield Canal is a beautiful rural waterway and is very popular with boaters from all over the country,” said David Baldacchino, local waterway manager with the Canal & River Trust. “The man-made canal is nearly 200 years old, so it’s a constant endeavour to keep it in good repair."
