Hatton Locks on The Grand Union Canal in the English Midlands.

The Grand Union Canal and the magnificent flight of 21 canal locks which comprise Hatton Lock Flight.


The following continues from our Knowle Locks, Kingswood Junction, Shrewley Tunnel on The Grand Union Canal item.
The Hatton Lock Flight raises (or drops) the Grand Union Canal 146 and a half feet - these locks were originally built as narrow or single locks but were modernised in the 1930s into full width locks. The location of the original locks beside them are still evident - see for instance our photo around halfway down this page which shows Middle Lock Bridge 53 with the old narrow lock (which is now used as an overflow sluice or weir) visible under the bridge's arch to the right.
The area around Hatton Locks is really pleasant - not least because of the views of the whole run of locks either from the top or bottom of the flight. The area is teeming with a variety of wildlife - particularly you can find many birds living around the canal including heron, kingfishers, swans, moorehen, coots and - as always waiting for people to feed them - lots of apparently starving, fat mallard and other ducks.
