Looking across the top mitre gates of lock No 42 (the 17th in the flight of 21) a vintage BWB van (also pictured at Fradley Depot) is nicely positioned to add colour on a dull day. The locks are wide enough to accommodate two 70 foot narrow boats side by side. Despite their size, these locks are well maintained, and fill/empty rapidly if all paddles are used to their full - not advisable when filling the locks containing just one boat.
