This Photo is from Richard Graw who was the guest  on this week’s Amateur Traveler episode Cruising Barge Canals in England and Wales – Episode 315.

This photo was taken by my wife Leslie Best. She did a wonderful job of capturing the moment.This photo was taken on the Hatton Flight (21 locks in a row). We are going up the flight back to Stratford. This is somewhere in the middle of the flight.

The boat on the right belongs to the couple who are standing over it. They are regulars on the canal and have done a great job of decorating the boat in a traditional manner.

My sister is on the left side of the lock while my niece lends a hand. I am relaxing while the lock fills so we can move out towards the next lock.

Editor: it was not until I saw this picture that I really understood the term “narrow boats”.
