Resume your walk on the road along the east bank of the canal pausing to admire the double lock followed by Spencer’s bridge - the Spencer in question was a hapless local landlord piked to death in the aforesaid Rebellion! Note how the bridge walls have been recessed to give room to the swing beams of the deep gates of the double-chambered lock. Cross the road keeping to the east bank to begin the walk to Monasterevin. A fine thatched cottage at Umeras bridge and the double lock at McCartney bridge are the main items of interest on this 10km trek to Monasterevin. Just past McCartney bridge, Ballykelly Mill turns its back to the canal. The first mill was built here in 1801 to take advantage of the newly constructed canal.
