The Worcester and Birmingham Canal, Worcester, Worcestershire, England
The entrance to the lock by the Commandery.
Starting at the Gas Street Basin in Birmingham this canal then traverses 30 miles and 58 locks to the City of Worcester terminating at Diglis Basin.
This is the actual lock, Sidbury Lock No. 3, by the Commandery and it is quite a deep one.
Walking along the canal path from the city centre to Diglis Basin is a pleasant and level walk and this shows the view along the canal on the approach to Diglis Basin.
Diglis Basin is where the canal meets the River Severn and there is a narrowboat there selling both hot and cold refreshments.
There are actually a number of areas of water which are inter-connected and together form the basin. It also includes a Marina for leisure boats.
