The Bratch
The Bratch, taken 33 years ago
This flight of locks is unusual in that it appears to be a staircase (multiple lock chambers with a single gate/pair of gates between each) but it is actually 3 separate locks built end to end. These locks are a popular spot with visitors and have been considerably titivated up since this picture was taken! See SO8693 : The Bratch '20 Years On'.
