Tinsley locks and Halfpenny Bridge
The bottom lock at Tinsley from the River Don. The stretch beyond the bridge is no longer navigable but, before the Sheffield and Tinsley Canal was opened, boats went a short distance further upstream to unload at Tinsley Wharf.
The virtual cruise continues along the River Don Navigation towards Rotherham and Doncaster.
