The Boat pub. Technically, it was a beer shop as it was not licensed to sell spirits.

The Railway Tavern - or Hotel (not to be confused with the Railway Arms - later renamed the Batchworth Arms, sited opposite Church Street station)

This would appear to be a worked out gravel pit. This area was later filled in and became the site of a timber yard, which is now the site of a Travis Perkins building supplies depot.

An unusual push/pull arrangement with the tank locomotive in the centre of the train. This photo was taken the year before the branch was electrified in October 1922.

Pair of working narrow boats. They have a "good road" as Batchworth lock appears to be full, ready for them. The front boat (left) is the motor, towing the unpowered butty. The stream of tubulence from the back of the butty will be due to it being steered round the bend.
