Fenny Stratford Lock
Fenny Stratford Lock
Fenny Stratford Lock has the smallest rise (1' 1") of any lock on the Grand Union Canal. It was built to solve the problem of leaks on the stretch between here and Wolverton by lowering the level of the canal below the points where the leaks were occurring. Note the grade II listed Red Lion pub - very handily placed for boaters in need of refreshment!
