Overview

State of the art locks were built at Hatton to flight off stiff competition from the roads and railways in the 1930's. When the locks were completed bands played and crowds gathered to watch the Duke of Kent arrive by boat and cut the ribbon. Today Hatton Locks is a lovely peaceful location to watch the colourful narrowboats as they move through the flight and if thats too much excitement why not enjoy a picnic or bite to eat in the cafe.

We went late in the afternoon. Hot not much shade. Plenty of seating. £1.50 for a days parking. We met some nice people. Happy to explain what they were doing. It looks hard work. 21 locks up or down. View of Warwick from the top.

If you park at the bridge pay and display carpark and stand on the bridge you can see the locks both ways. The longest streach of locks has a pathway and benches to sit on. I estimate there are 27 locks almost next to each... More
