A most impressive sight, I travelled through these on a narrowboat holiday back in March last year
It must have been bloody hard work.
Now that is what I call a hard days graft going though that lot lol. I am very suprised that nobody as thought about setting up a cafe or a Canal Service Station on the half way point. It would make a fortune.
Thanks for sharing this amazing image, well taken & positioned in the frame!
An interesting sight. It aroused my curiosity so I went looking for more information......
The following is abbreviated from Wikipedia:
"Caen Hill Locks are a flight of locks on the Kennet and Avon Canal, between Rowde and Devizes in Wiltshire England.
The 29 locks have a rise of 237 feet in 2 miles (72 m in 3.2 km) or a 1 in 44 gradient. Because a large volume of water is needed for the locks to operate, a back pump was installed at Foxhangers in 1996 capable of returning 32 million litres of water per day to the top of the flight, which is equivalent to one lockful every eleven minutes. The locks take 5–6 hours to travel in a boat."
