Newlay Locks, Leeds & Liverpool Canal
Undated. View of Newlay Locks on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal at Newlay looking in the direction of Rodley. The Leeds & Liverpool Canal was constructed between 1772 and 1816 and the locks have dressed millstone grit walls ramped up to each lock gate with steps on each side. Each gate has a single wooden footbridge on the downstream side. Each lock is 14 feet or 4.20 metres wide and when in operation, uses 50,000 gallons of water. Newlay Cottage is visible in the background. Newlay Locks with a three rise staircase, are grade II listed.

I took this photograph in the summer of 1959. One of several pictures of the Bramley area that I took when I was a student-teacher in the Teacher Training Department at Leeds College of Art.
