Watford Staircase
looking north.

The seven narrow beam Watford locks lift the Grand Union Leicester Arm 16 metres (526) to the Leicester summit level. Four locks are in a staircase sharing top and bottom gates. They were opened in 1814 and there have been schemes to widen them from 7 foot to 14 foot ever since. They, with Foxton Locks at the other end of the summit level, are the main barriers preventing wide beam boats and barges reaching the waterways of the midlands and north.
