Picture of the Week – history of the lock-keeper’s cottage along the canal at Brighouse

RIVERS and canals are steeped in history, and they’re also a favourite haunt for dog walkers too.

RIVERS and canals are steeped in history, and they’re also a favourite haunt for dog walkers too.

And an Elland man is calling for more information about a former lock-keeper’s cottage along the canal which runs through Brighouse and Elland.

Iain Carter, of Elland Road, took this snap of a lock known as North Cut in Brighouse, while walking his dog.

He said: “I’ve just moved to the area and have been walking along the canal there a few times.

“It’s usually full of runners, dog walkers, fishermen and cyclists on a Sunday.

“There are locks all along the canal and at this one there is a building which you can see in the distance which I imagine used to be a lock-keeper’s base but I don’t know for sure, can any readers help?

“It’s empty now and a bit run down. Not sure if it’s used for anything.”
