Photo Challenges

The Weaver Navigation

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Pick a Topic from my Photo.

This month Cee posted a photo of a river with some old industrial buildings on the far side of the river.

This is Hunt’s Locks on a section of the Weaver Navigation with the Weaver Railway Viaduct behind at Northwich, Cheshire England.

The Weaver Navigation is a stretch of the river made navigable for boats. The locks are used to raise and lower boats between different levels of the river. Although the scene looks very industrial, in reality it was mostly residential property in the area.

Throwback Thursday

Hunt’s Locks

Throwback Thursday travels back to the winter of 1979/80 and a walk along a section of the the Weaver Navigation.

These are Hunt’s Locks (or Hunts Locks depending on the reference you use) on the Weaver Navigation in Northwich, Cheshire.

The small lock was built circa. 1860 and the large lock circa. 1890. The Weaver Railway Viaduct that crosses the River Weaver is in the background.
