Dowley Gap locks


Half a mile or so further along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal from the last lock at Hirst Wood (see yesterday), after crossing the aqueduct over the River Aire, I reached this two-rise lock at Dowley Gap just as a narrowboat was leaving the lock. I always enjoy seeing the different boats. In summer many are hire boats (crewed with varying degrees of skill by holidaymakers!) but this one appeared to be privately owned.
