Friday Fences: Sluice gate at Moorfield Place

This sluice gate on the Peak Forest Canal allows water to run off into Wilson Brook. The houses behind the fence on the right are part of Moorfield Place which was built on the former site of Automasters Engineering Works

See it in the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.

See how it looked in February 2012 when there was a layer of ice on the canal.

See how it looked in March 2011.

See how it looked in 2008 before the demolition of Automasters.

A contribution to Friday Fences.


  1. is that the same view ... just from a different direction. i enjoy the flowers. brights up the view. (:

  2. A wonderful added view...or views, actually as I checked out the links! :-) So sad in 2008. Loved it with the ice! And the flowers are really pretty.

  3. I checked out all the views - there seems to be a bit more trash in it now...I loved the view with the ice on the canal!

  4. I like your perspective here. That looks like jewelweed in the foreground.

  5. I do love me a daily photoblog!!! I used to live in England (up in Hull) and I miss all the buildings and architecture, the people and the food! Glad I found your blog!

  6. I seem to detect a trend - nature is taking over.

  7. Interesting photo. I am wondering why there is a ladder in the sluice. I like the winter scene too. Pamela
