Crooklands Wharf: This office at the entrance to the Crooklands Wharf coal merchant's depot, seen here in 2020, appears on the 1896 OS 6-inch map [[74601]], which also shows a tramway siding running through each of the two gated entrances onto the canal wharf. Coal and other supplies would be unloaded from barges here and taken by the horse tramway to Gatebeck Powder Works, about one and a half miles north of here along the Peasey Beck valley. Crooklands Wharf, and nearby Wakefield's Wharf, on the non-navigable stretch of the Lancaster Canal, are only a mile from Junction 36 of the M6 and a very interesting historic site to visit.
