Wilmcote Locks No 47, Warwickshire
This shows the eighth lock down in the flight of eleven on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal, seen from the next lock up (No 46). The eleven locks lower (or raise) the water level by 77ft 1in (235 metres). Narrowboat "Guppy" is on its journey from Stratford, towards Birmingham, but is in no hurry, as queues were beginning to form on this busy summer Sunday.
