Brighouse Lock

Workmen refurbishing the Brighouse Lock-gates
That's a long way down - like being entombed I would think!

@quietpurplehaze The work needed to be done, just hope the temporary barriers stay in place there is a lot of water above them:)

Good to see they are being maintained. The flight of locks near me is drained and having work done too. It was also an open day and you could go down into the deep lock to view.

What a great shot it tells a story. Quite a mucky job though. Not so sure I would fancy working down there, I hope the lock gates hold.

You must have another lock for the boats to use since this one is closed!

@louannwarren Thanks for your comments Lo Ann, no other lock in the Brighouse Basin , they have to go back up the canal about 5 miles and turn onto an part of the canal spur route and travel passed the basin on the other side of Brighouse and back on to the canal:)
