Leeds and Liverpool Canal Locks (Liverpool)

The Leeds and Liverpool Canal Locks are an important part of the industrial heritage of the maritime city of Liverpool.

The canal was in partial use from 1774 and completed through to Leeds (Yorkshire) in 1816.

A direct link from the canal to the docks was formed in 1848, with four locks designed by Hartley. They are the only all-granite canal locks in the country.

Over the locks is a brick viaduct, which carried the Liverpool and Bury Railway.

The canal has been extended through to Albert Dock.
