Passing under the elevated city ring road one enters Northgate top lock. Here AmyJo waited whilst we lowered the next two chambers for our descent. Our old friend the pigeon was still there when Adrian and Adam visited last year in Briar Rose (click) and followed us down.

|One cannot help feeling you are descending into the bowels of the earth.|
|Be reassurance is at hand when the bottom gates open|

|Part of the new country park and trail|
|Bridge 132a and two of the arches on the right.|
