 Lock No 23 south of Kingswood Junction, Warwickshire
Lock No 23 south of Kingswood Junction, Warwickshire
This is Lock No 23 on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal, one of the Lapworth flight of locks near Kingswood in Warwickshire, and seen from Broom Hall Bridge, No 38.
The Lapworth Flight of Locks
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... and there are more locks at regular intervals south of those! 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.
