Stairfoot Locks, Dearne and Dove Canal
The remains of Lock 17, the top lock of the Stairfoot flight, can just be seen in the undergrowth. The offside wall of the lock chamber is visible in the centre of the picture. This is now private land. Immediately above this lock was the junction from which the Worsborough Branch led off to the south.
