Grand Union Canal near Watford, Northamptonshire
Grand Union Canal near Watford, Northamptonshire
These narrowboats have moored while they wait to enter the Watford flight of seven locks. Boaters need to contact the lock-keeper when they arrive, as careful management of boat movement up and down the locks is required; little room for waiting is available in the pounds either end of the staircase (Locks 3 to 6). The locks raise this Leicester Section of the Grand Union Canal by 52ft 6in (16 metres).
