Hatton locks

DSCF6010This is looking up the Hatton flight. The top lock is just about visible and to the left, behind the green umbrellas, is the cafe. It was originally stables but now serves a smashing cup of tea and there was a very tempting smell of bacon wafting about when people passed with trays. I've posted the rest of the set on Flickr.

Hatton locks are about 5 minutes from J15 on M40. Take the A46 Warwick Bypass for a couple of miles to the A4177 (signed Warwick Parkway rail station). Go north, towards Solihull, on the A4177. After a mile and a half Canal Road is on the left, it's signposted. There is a pay and display car park. This link goes to a Google map showing the route.

Smashing place to break a journey and a nice change from a motorway service station.
