Caen Hill Flight, Lock 44 Downwards
Caen Hill Flight, Lock 44 Downwards
View down the Caen Hill flight of 16 locks on the Kennet & Avon Canal, West of Devizes, Wiltshire; this is part of a set of 29 locks lowering the navigation level a total of 108 8 in 2 1/4 miles.

Taken by C Langham of Gloucestershire from an over-bridge of lock above, shows one paddle drawn to equalise the water level in preparation for a boat going down into the lock; the level is now correct and the gates have drifted apart, so require opening by the crew, prior to the boat continuing.
