Spon Lane Junction

I dispute this location. Picture 3 (leaving top lock)shows a large motor way support, the others are smaller, just behind the valve post. I think this is the right hand pillar of the large bridge section either side of marker "!8itt" (zoom to 3D). This would coincide with the widened canal at this point --- Shultzy
