SP1876 : Knowle Locks, Grand Union Canal

taken 40 years ago, near to Knowle, Solihull, Great Britain

Knowle Locks, Grand Union Canal
Knowle Locks, Grand Union Canal
Taken from the top lock of the group of five closely-spaced locks of the Knowle flight. These locks were widened in the 1930s, along with others on the Grand Union south of here, in an attempt to induce full-width boats to trade up to Birmingham. However the experiment was not really a success and very few wide boats or barges ever used these locks, although pairs of narrow boats were able to work through the locks 'breasted up'.
