Emerging from the tunnel on the south side, the canal bends to the right, with taller piles supporting the embankment on the left.
Looking back to the tunnel from the south. The slope of the tunnel roof can be seen clearly.
Looking back to the motorway from the new Lock 53.
The new Lock 53 fills.
The farm access bridge across the tail of the new Lock 53.
The new channel re-joins the original line of the canal.
Looking back to the new bridge with the new lock beyond, with the old channel curving away to the left.
