This is a small part of a flight of locks - 21 in total.
I like the way the line of the locks leads the eye to the tower of the Collegiate Church of St. Mary - it dominates the skyline of Warwick.

Nice photo of a lovely area. Nice crisp winter lighting.

I have worked up and down these locks quite a few times in my boating career. They are hard work - normally about 3 hours for all 21 locks. The locks have been closed for maintenance recently and so the 'pounds' between the locks have been drained - normally the water level in the foreground would be a lot higher - up to the hole in the first pair of gates. The mud in the bottom right would normally be well under water.

You are quite right about St. Mary's - it is a landmark you can see from all sorts of places in the surrounding area.

Well done!

You are quite right about the maintenance work - I also took some shots of the men working in the dry lock.
