Grand Union Canal Bascote middle lock
Grand Union Canal Bascote middle lock
Looking 'downhill' (west) at the middle lock at Bascote. There are four locks here and thus there should not be a 'middle' one: however, the top two form a single 'riser' [LinkExternal link] so there are actually only three locations.

Although these locks are nowadays known as 'Bascote four', generations of working boatmen knew them as the top of 'the Radford ten' (there being ten locks up from Radford three miles to the west).
