Seven canal locks by which Leeds - Liverpool Canal was joined to Lancaster Canal South End in 1816. Large gritstone blocks: wooden gates (some now have metal push bars) with iron sluices etc. Locks do not form a single flight, but are irregularly spaced in a total length of 1 km from Top Lock Bridge on Copthurst Lane at the north end to the junction with Walton Summit Branch at the south end. All are of standard form, all have wooden footbridges at the lower end,but the entrances of Top Lock, 4th Lock and 7th Lock differ: lower entrance of Top Lock and upper entrance of 4th lock are extended to pass under (respectively) Top Lock Bridge (q.v.) and 4th Lock Bridge (q.v.) and the left wall at the lower entrance to 7th lock turns round the junction to form a bullnose which is crossed by a raised stone causeway between 2 footbridges. Between the 3 lowest locks are 2 basins. All locks in working order. (Part of Top Lock, and Top Lock House which shares GV are in Heapey CP).
