My Sunday Photo: Lock, Stock and Barrel!

A photo of Caen Hill Locks, taken from the top, looking down the canal.

This photo was taken at Caen Hill Locks in Devizes. It's a unique arrangement of 29 locks in a row and it's fascinating to look at. Such is my husband's dedication to My Sunday Photo, he took this whilst balanced on top of the first of the 29 locks. Don't try this at home, folks!

  2. Fab photo! I was wondering if it was Audlem locks (in Shropshire I think), but that is 'only' 17 locks. My MIL has a canal boat and we had a couple of happy holidays on it, way back in the day.

    1. Couldn't help feeling sorry for the boat owners having to go through them all!

    1. Yep. Coincidentally, when we got back there was a programme on TV all about it. They had celebrities having a go, so I know all about them now!
