Out Waterway Routes narrowboat is entering Factory Lock 2, the middle of the three Factory Locks.

As with many of the locks on the Birmingham Canal Navigations it has single gates at both ends of the lock.  This makes the bottom gate heavier to operate than the pairs of gates often found at the bottom end of locks, but it does save the crew a lot of walking.
