Kingswood Link
Kingswood Link
Looking directly through the recently re-instated direct link between the Stratford-upon-Avon and Grand Union Canals at Kingswood Junction. In the days when the two canals were owned by separate companies the water supplies were jealously guarded and boats were forced to make passages up one lock and then back down another to ensure that water was always carried from the newer canal to the older one!
