Virtual Cruise - River Don Navigation - Rotherham (1)

The virtual cruise from Sheffield now continues along the River Don Navigation through Rotherham.
Jordans Weir
Half a mile after the canal from Sheffield enters the River Don at Halfpenny Bridge, there is a weir on the right, with a barrier to prevent boats going astray. The navigation goes to the left, into a lock cut, through Jordans Lock, Holmes Lock and Ickles Lock before re-joining the river.

Rotherham Lock
This picture looks back from the footbridge across Rotherham Lock. Rotherham seems to turn its back on the waterway but at a new Magistrates' Court overlooks this lock and makes a feature of it.
