Christmas on the canals
Christmas on the canals
On a dull, damp late December morning, it's quiet on the Great Union Canal near Hatton Locks. Opened as the Warwick & Birmingham Canal in 1799 to carry coal to the factories of the Black Country, it was renamed as the Grand Union Canal in 1929 and is now used by the thousands of narrow-boat enthusiasts who face the prospect - or have just left behind - the 21 gates at Hatton Locks.
