Otherton Lock south of Penkridge in Staffordshire
Working narrowboat "Stanton" is in Otherton Lock, No 36 on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. The lock provides a rise (or fall) of 10ft 3in (about 31 metres).

This restored historic boat is painted with the original two tone blue Grand Union Canal Carrying Company livery, and was built in 1936 (Large Northwich design). It was fully converted into a leisure cruiser in the 1970s, but has been converted back into the current traditional working boat in 2007.
Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It cost a little over 100,000 at the time. It links the River Severn at Stourport to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood Junction in Staffordshire. There are 43 locks (45 if you don't fancy the deep wide locks at Stourport) and the canal is 46 miles in length.
