Vlog 181: Locking all over the world

After staying in Atherstone due to a week of non-stop rain, I finally had a nice day when I felt like moving on, and took the opportunity to descend the eleven-lock flight.

    Wow! This was truly enjoyable David and well worth the wait! So much eye candy and scenery. I loved the Butterflies pollinating the beautiful bush. I also really liked how you shared in detail, how the Locks work. It was nice to see it explained in a front to back visual detail. I also liked that boat yard you passed, it looked like a fine place to moor. Thanks as always David.

    • I was rather pleased with the bush full of wildlife and that I managed to get them on camera because it was so bright I couldn’t really see what I was filming! And the bees kept moving haha

  2. Do the volunteer lockkeepers do the work for the love of the canels or is there a benefit to them such as a reduction in fees from the Trust?

    • Just for the love of it, I believe. It gets them outdoors, they meet lots of people, and can enjoy the canals even if they don’t have a boat.
