There Go The Boats BTF 1951– uploaded onto YouTube Jul 22, 2011
"This film was made for British Waterways by British Transport Films in an age when the inland waterways were still functioning as part of the means of production. It depicts a way of life that was soon to pass with the arrival of the container and motorways."

Six minutes into the film there is a one minute clip of the locks at Nob End in 1911 – see clip
