The vista of the lock flight is an impressive one and the whole thing works as it did when it was built. The added bonus is the plethora of mostly birdlife on the cut. Kingfisher, heron and wildfowl.

Lucky enough to live nearby, as well as the remarkable locks, the water attracts a good variety of wildlife. There is a tea shop at the top and it is a photographers (and dogs) playground.
