This is a simple, but ingenious design for a style, as it swivels to allow pedestrians and cyclists through. Moving on up through Botterham Staircase Locks we rose up 20’ 3”.
The several beautifully designed spill weirs are a great feature of this canal. They don’t build them like that anymore do they? Donkeys are a bit of a rarity these days too. Another lovely day gliding along slowly enjoying the sunshine Then we passed under the amusingly named Giggety Bridge and through Bumble Hole Lock.
