A view of a couple of the locks and the Lock Inn at Foxton Locks on the Grand Union Canal in Leicestershire, taken a few weeks ago on my narrowboat holiday. This was taken on the penultimate day when we were journeying North through the locks to reach Union Wharf in Market Harborough the start and finish point of our canal voyage.

Although it was cold Ed you had some cracking blue sky's. Excellent composition and exposure, copy all these to DVD after a few months! Sit with a glass of wine and relive this time again.

Regards

Trev.

Pretty canal side buildings add to the appeal of this kind of holiday and this series allows us to share its charm.

Lovely overview of what to expect on this type of holiday.
I'm sure these Inns must be a welcome sight and great places to relax in after you hard work.
As Ronnie it all looks well managed.

You have certainly documented this holiday well, Ed, and given us an insight into a calm and relaxed journey. Good to see how clean and tidy everything looks.

That looks like much better weather, Ed, and I like the touches of red, which help to lift any image. Excellent lead-in and nice composition.
