taken 3 years ago, near to New Mill, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Stop lock, Wendover Arm, Grand Union Canal
Stop lock, Wendover Arm, Grand Union Canal
A stop lock is like a pound lock in having two sets of lock gates, but if open the canal is at the same level both sides. Until 2004 the lock gates were closed and the section beyond this point was dry. There are towpaths both sides of the canal, but cycling would have been easier on the side away from the photographer.
