California Lock

California (or Morris's) Lock was on the Uttoxeter Canal, closed in 1849 to make way for the North Staffordshire Railway. Nearby, there were wharves for loading coal, brought by the Woodhead Tramroad from the mines around Cheadle. After 161 years of disuse and neglect the Lock today still looks in remarkable condition.
