Newlay Locks, canal overflow
Undated. View of Newlay Lock and canal overflow near Newlay. At the left edge Newlay Cottage is visible, and in the background, St. Helen's Works at the other side of the railway lines can be seen. This was the premises of Ross (Gelatines) Ltd. of Newlay. Newlay Locks, with a three rise staircase, are Grade II listed.

In the late 1980's i fished these locks extensively, gudgeon being my main target. Today they are noticeable by their absence.We even used to catch them in the overflow even though it was barely three or four inches deep.....
