Fenny Stratford Lock. This lock was built in 1802 because of water losses north of here due to leaks. The idea being to create slightly different levels. The drop in level here is just around 12".
The swing bridge is in use and must be swung open to use the lock. A Swing Bridge within a lock was at one time quite common.

Soulbury 3 Locks

The Globe Inn. It was very nearby to this pub that the Great Train Robbery took place when Ronnie Biggs and his crew lifted £2/3 million pounds from a mail train heading into London. Seems a small amount now but back then it was headline news and featured in the news for months.

An old swing Bridge lays un-used.

Just a few hundred yds before Tesco and L. Buzzard town is the base of Wyvern Shipping Co. and it`s hire fleet moored 3 abreast in places. I counted 25 boats but had seen 1/2 still out cruising. Will moor here for the night before heading to Marsworth to meet friends & family.
