Looking across the canal above Lock 1.  The canal is never completely dry.  This view focuses on the 'fit-out' wall at the shipyard.  Ships may tie up here for preparation before entering and after leaving the drydock.

Looking down at the south, or upper, lock gate at Lock 1.  Staging has been erected to the left to allow workers to access the chamber.  At the bottom of the photo is a concrete area, the sill that ships must clear to pass through the lock.
