Marsden  Lock 39e
Looking west from Lock 39e, Warehouse Hill Lock, with Marsden Church visible behind the trees. To the left is evidence of a former wharf. There was an old crane here within living memory. The buildings behind this were at one time a lock-keeper's cottage and warehouse, after which the road took its name, which may have been used as an additional transhipment warehouse before the opening of Standedge Tunnel.

 Locks 35e and 34e

Looking west across the short pound above Lock 34e, White Syke Lowest. (White Syke Farm is on the hillside above this lock.)
