Tring, Marsworth Locks c.1965

More about this scene


Caption for Tring, Marsworth Locks C1960: Half a mile north of New Mill is a complex of reservoirs; they were built by the Grand Junction Canal in the 1830s to store water for the Marsworth Flight of locks, whereby the canal descends from the Tring Gap onto the Vale of Aylesbury. These are now nature reserves and popular with walkers, as is the canal towpath itself. Here at Lock 39 the Lower Icknield Way crosses the canal beside the White Lion pub, which was built to slake the thirst of bargees in the mid 19th century.
