Carr Lock (or Carr's Lock), 18e. The name comes from Carr Cottage on the hillside above, now separated from the canal by the railway. (Incorrectly named in some guides as Cas Lock.)
Carr Lock, 18e is set in a wonderfully attractive and isolated location.
The wooded hillside next to Carr Lock, 18e, is a wonderful place for bluebells in the Spring.

Westwood Mill, near Linthwaite, looking east. This listed building is believed to be the earliest surviving woollen mill in the Colne Valley and shows different phases of construction over a long period. It was originally powered by water from the adjacent mill pond. The earliest part of the building was a scribbling mill, facing the mill pond (right), built in 1798 while the canal itself was being built.
