Hatton Locks No 44 and an empty pound, Warwickshire
Hatton Locks No 44 and an empty pound, Warwickshire
About two hours earlier, the pound above Lock No 44 was about 30cm down for no apparent reason, but here it is empty, about a metre below normal. It had been raining a lot for some days and the rest of the flight was full to overflowing, so had someone left the bottom paddles of Lock 43 raised? They were OK when I took the picture. This would cause a complete stoppage of all canal traffic on this flight of 21, but luckily it had been raining for many hours and hardly anyone was on the move.
