Here you can see the how the locks work like steps up the hillside.

Here's some more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foxton_Locks

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

I'm amazed Elf and Safety have not got all this taped off ! Perhaps there are 'Danger of Death' signs out of shot !

@Ronnie 2¢: Good point Ronnie... there were minimal measures to stop people just plummeting into the locks! I've come over in a cold sweat now the realisation's hit me...

By today's standards these are tiny locks, but what a great step forward they were in their time! Nice shot!
