First you need to check the Stoppage list that you will find on because if a lock is on the shortest route then its no good to you. Then you need to decide if you are single handing or boating with another. This is because the large GU locks to just short of Birmingham are a bit of a handful for one so a longer route via the North Oxford, Coventry and Birmingham and Fazely canal may well be easier with all narrow locks. Finally use an on-line route planner to check the tome for a variety of routes. I would recommend There is another longer route (still narrow locks) via the Staffs & Worcester canal that you might have to take if the other two are closed through stoppages. Tony Brooks
