The Locks


The locks at Lisburn Civic Centre, part of the linen heritage of this area and the industrial expansion from Belfast.  These locks are only used very occasionally for special boating events. Barges no longer travel this waterway, a pity, I think!

Linking with Tom's Tuesday Treasures HERE

  3. It must be interesting to see a boat use the locks. I looks like there is no one around. Nice image Christine!

  5. There's such an interesting mystery to these kinds of places, so much going on. All very important to the works of each and every lock system.
