Mystery four-rise

Featured Posts

I've lifted this pic from a Facebook post (it was on the CWDF Facebook group which I don't often bother with) - the poster was trying to make a point re lack of funding for canals but I will admit I don't know where this is save I'm pretty sure it's not in the UK or Ireland. It's an abandoned four-rise and I can only think of one such in the British Isles - Norwood on the Chesterfield and it doesn't look like that! The other two, Watford and Muirtown (Caledonian) are still in use. 


France? USA? Anybody know? 


Just curious that's all.

Black River Canal, Northern New York State. Connected Erie canal to the Black River.



Thank you! You're super-speedy in that response.


I've taken an interest in canals of New York State but haven't got far with the Black River Canal yet.

Google image search showed a couple of pages claiming it to be a UK canal as well as the link Matty has provided above.


Believe me it's not a UK canal, even without the evidence that Matty has provided. 


I could do to work out how to use Google image search though!


Thanks both of you for looking it up.

They do look in good condition despite being abandoned.


It looks to be maintained as part of a park, which is quite a USA thing, I've been to half a dozen sites where bits of canal are maintained in this way - and have a hit list of a few dozen more if I ever get back there.
