exhausting work getting a boat through that lot!

Fortunately I was just visiting and didn’t have to do any of the hard work. I do remember having to get through a similar flight in Birmingham several years ago though, it’s a big relief to get through them.

I think the flight in Birmingham are narrow locks, much easier.

I have done this flight 3 times (in each direction), once with a cracked rib. Not fun!

Very clear picture. I have put our photo up, but nowhere near as good, but it was raining! If you find it, our boat is on the right Backwater.

3 times in each direction, you must be very fit. Yes I think your correct, they are smaller in Birmingham, but it's still a long old slog.

Lovely shot! I guess one had better hope the ladies on board have been attending their fitness classes regularly!

You certainly need to be fit and organised to get through a flight of locks like this. I was just a spectator here, but I have worked my way through a similar flight in Birmingham.

Ian, that looks like hard work, boats bringing up the steps. I wouldn't be a great help, I fear! ;) Excellent photo, one for my collection, thanks! Best regards, May
