Venetian Marina to Gowy Aqueduct

Miles 8.6 locks 6
We are now on the Shropshire Union canal proper having come off the Middlewich branch at Barbridge and turned northe towards Chester. The locks are allwide and have a round building beside the lock as well as the lock cottage. A typical example of the small round building beside the lock. Suggestions as to their use are welcome.
Beeston stone lock with both cottage and round building in view.

Beeston steel lock, waiting for it to fill. Our overnight mooring is where the canal crosses a small river called the Gowy.
