TQ0488 : Grand Union Canal: Widewater Lock in South Harefield

taken 10 years ago, near to Denham Green, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

Grand Union Canal: Widewater Lock in South Harefield
Grand Union Canal: Widewater Lock in South Harefield
Photographed from the Moorhall Road bridge, this is Lock No. 86 and its associated lock keeper's cottage. As its name suggests, the canal is wider than usual here, both upstream and downstream of the lock. Curiously the lock has a formal BWB site nameplate calling it "Wide Water", but searching for the name "Wide Water" and "lock" in Google produces 1 hit, whereas "Widewater" and "lock" produces 116 hits. To confuse matters even further the structure is also known as Harefield Moor Lock!
