Lock No1 Mirfield by pcoulson

Lock No1 Mirfield

Went out today to find a set of locks with a lock keepers cottage in Mirfield after receiving Babs @onewing comment yesterday, Cooper Bridge Mirfield Lock No1 at the junction with Huddersfield Broad Canal and the Calder and Hebble Navigation.
Lovely shot.

A lovely “cottage”, it is wonderful (and large!).

How interesting, Cooper Bridge rings a bell. Would this be the lock keepers house. I hope so because my relative had lots of children. He was at Mirfield as a lock keeper before the census records began in 1841 as he was born in 1802 so I don't know how old these houses are.
In later life he lived in lots of places including Darton and Hemsworth where he is listed as a boat builder.
His son James lived at The Maltings and also Low Littlemoor in Mirfield. Shouldn't think any of those houses are still there now though. That would be about 1870s
I'll have to fav this one

It looks like a beautiful spot Peter, with the nice green grass, blue sky and reflections. :)

@louannwarren Thank you for both your comment and Fav Lou Ann, looking at the lines in the stonework it was originally a single story cottage with an additional extension to the right of the door frame, suspect it was done a very long time ago:)

@onewing Thank you for your interesting comment and Fav, I had now idea where to look in Mirfield as there are a number of locks in the area, this one fitted the bill having an original cottage and also locate in the centre of the original village, the only access is by boat or on foot, I'm pleased you liked it Babs had to walk in the rain to get there, I will have a look into the other locations some time and let you know what I find:)

@pcoulson Thank you so much for your great comment Henri the little bridge over the end of the lock is only wide enough for one person:)

I love the reflection. Well done. Beautiful image.

Just gorgeous. I had a look at the Exif numbers and was surprised at the clarity throughout at f/7.1 - even using the wide angle lens. Fav here.

@stray_shooter Many thanks for your lovely comment and Fav, Ron, its a little soft from the footbridge back, not a competition winner but still the shot was taken primarily for Babs @onewing:)
