After a good day moored at Rowington we made a later than normal start and headed towards Kingswood junction. This is where we come off The Grand Union canal and head towards Stratford upon Avon on the Stratford canal. After turning off at the junction you can take the lock on the right that takes you up the Lapworth flight and then onto Birmingham. But we turn left as we are heading down towards Stratford upon Avon
We encountered this strange lock gate on the approach to Stratford upon Avon. Luckily there was a lockie on duty who said that it was very hard to work with one person, although no doubt Carolyn would have managed.
