Bridge No 32 at Lapworth Locks No 7, Warwickshire
Bridge No 32 at Lapworth Locks No 7, Warwickshire
It appears that the lock ground paddle on the towpath side is up and the gentle turbulence in the water means the lock is almost empty.

There are twenty-six locks in the Lapworth flight on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal. Together they change the water level by 158ft 6in (about 52 metres) over about two and a half miles. However, navigating from top to bottom of the flight will only involve passing through twenty-five locks, because Nos 20 and 21 are paired, the former being on the bypass towards the quarter mile link to the Grand Union Canal.
