This Virtual Tour of Marple Locks would not have been possible within extensive reference to the following superb works on the subject of the Peak Forest Canal by Olive Bowyer:
- THE PEAK FOREST CANAL: ITS CONSTRUCTION & LATER DEVELOPMENT
- THE PEAK FOREST CANAL: UPPER LEVEL: TOWPATH GUIDE
- THE PEAK FOREST CANAL: LOWER LEVEL: TOWPATH GUIDE
If you enjoy this tour you'll find much more information in Olive's books, which are published by New Mills Local History Society.
