SP2466 : "Wot, no water?"

taken 9 years ago, near to Hatton, Warwickshire, Great Britain

"Wot, no water?"
"Wot, no water?"
On the Grand Union Canal, this is the pound below Lock No 44 in the Hatton flight of 21 at 18:50 BST. The water is about a metre down. Two hours earlier, having locked up the flight through continuous rain, I noticed the level to be about 30cm down, but unless someone left a paddle open after we went through Lock 43 I can't see how all the water disappeared. Water levels above Lock 44, and below 43 were normal.

On the right are the remains of the original narrow lock, replaced in 1932 following the 1929 merging of eight canals (including this Warwickshire and Birmingham Canal) to form the Grand Union Canal.
