After Burton Ings Bridge, the approach to Swinton Junction is lined with laid-up barges and butties awaiting work.
Approaching Swinton Junction.
Swinton Junction, invisible on the left behind the barges, marked the junction with the Dearne and Dove Canal. The former arm of that canal is used by Waddington's boatyard. Waddington's is one of the major operators of barges on the South Yorkshire Navigation. On the right is Waddington Lock, Swinton.
