A very good view of the staircase. I've only ever seen Neptune's Staircase, that raises the canal by 62ft over quarter of a mile. I lost every picture I took of it and Ben Nevis. I also notice you've gone north of Watford Gap - you be careful;) L&YS

Every now and then I do missionary work north of Watford Gap and south of the Brighton. My passport is littered with such events.

Good morning Keepclicking. Excellent composed view on this locks. Very well chosen point. I saw that it is not to far from Cambridge, so will have a look the next time we will visit my sister. I hope they will admit foreigners :). LIKE and greetings from Holland Jan

Hi Jan, both this one and the even better Foxton flight are about an hours drive from Cambridge. Foreigners are allowed as long as they spend lots of monety with us as we are skint.
