3. Morris Canal
The round stone abutment supported the center of the bridge which spanned the canal from the photographer’s position to the stonework near the flag on the opposite side. The dam is downstream near the road bridge at right. Locks Nos. 9 & 10 allowed boats to navigate around the dam. No trace of the locks exist.
