Onwards and upwards and downwards!


First today - a few acres of solar panels.  Amazing.
Next to Peterborough to visit the worlds highest Lift Lock.  Here's a link for those who are interested.  

The guide - he has 8 kids and he's still breathing!!!!

The fountain in the middle of the lake which we crossed before entering the  Trent-Severn canal.

Opening the sluices on the first lock.  It's a regular lock - very deep, though.  Here's a video link to see this 'live'.


Onwards and past the swing bridge.

Approaching the Lift Lock.  Link to the video is here.

Going up video. 



View from the top.  We were level with the road before the lift.  After we'd reached the top we went further along the canal.  Here's us approaching the 'end of the world' or, rather, the lift lock going back.  Another video here.

  1. This video is private.

    Sorry about that.

    I can't see the videos, sadly, but I should imagine it would have been very interesting for you to experience that, and to compare it with your own locks at home.

    1. Try again, Maureen! I think I've now made them public. First time using iMovie, El Capitan and YouTube together and the brain ain't that good either!!!!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
