Full Description

Belk Lane Lock and Belk Lane Bridge. A large stone-built bridge adjacent to the original 1770s lock. The lock was lightly infilled in the 1970s up to the level of the coping stones (which are still [1991] visible), but it believed to be in good condition and intact (less gates). The bridge hole has been bricked up, probably at the same time as the lock was infilled. Listed as Chesterfield Canal Lock No. 6 and Canal Bridge No. 28. (1)
