I read somewhere that the bay window on the upper floor was so the lockeeper could see up & down the canal & keep an eye on what was going on. Can anyone say if this is true?

Nice clear photo, lots to look at.

It is, indeed, a very pleasant photo, Maureen.

Quite peaceful.

Well done, as usual, Dave....

HoT, it would make sense to have that bay window as on observation post.
