Title Photograph of the boatyard at Lock 16
Description From 1840 to about 1935 the boatyard was operated by the Jinks family, who lived at Top Lock House. On a larger copy of the old photograph below, the words on the sign over the wooden shed next to the house can just about be made out as 'R. JINKS, Horse Shoer & General Smith'. Probably the best known member of the family was James Jinks who served for many years as a local councillor and also as chairman of Marple Urban District Council.
