Lock gate west of Rowington Green in Warwickshire
Lock gate west of Rowington Green in Warwickshire
At Lock No 26 on the Lapworth flight in Warwickshire both ground paddles are raised, and the chamber is almost full to capacity, so very soon the gate will be opened and the paddles carefully lowered (not dropped)!
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.
