Every morning the farmer came to feed and check over his flock of sheep with their lambs. We will miss their amusing antics, as bleating loudly, they all rushed across the field to greet him.
We used the services at the top of Watford Locks before descending and being helped all the way down by a very friendly, chatty volunteer lock keeper. We were impressed by how neat the whole area around the locks and side ponds were kept by the volunteers.
There are seven locks, four of them being staircase ones dropping us down fifty-two and a half feet altogether. there always seems to be a storm force wind blowing across here, maybe it is because it is in such close proximity to the M1.
