Hillmorton Locks, BCN.

The three locks at Hillmorton, once so busy that the locks were doubled to make two flights side by side, and sharing the lock pounds in between. Today there is a fair bit of pleasure traffic for it lies between the long and very popular Braunston Pound and the pound stretching right up to Hawkesbury.

In spite of the traffic, it can still be a peaceful place, particularly as one looks down from the top lock into the setting sun on a wintry evening.
