Canals and Narrowboats
A narrowboat moored up on The Tardebigge Flight on the Worcester and Birmingham canal. The Tardebigge Flight is the longest flight of locks on the UK canal system, comprising 30 narrow locks on a two-and-a-quarter-mile (3.6 km) stretch of the Worcester and Birmingham Canal at Tardebigge, Worcestershire. It raises the waterway 220 feet (67 m), and lies between the Tardebigge tunnel (580 yards or 530 metres long) to the North and the Stoke Prior flight of six narrow locks to the South.

Bulbourne Dry Dock is located at the top lock of the Marsworth Flight of the Grand Union Canal at it's junction with The Wendover Arm. The dock is one of the few truly enclosed dry docks available on the Southern canal system. It is a solid brick building built over an enlarged lock chamber that was specifically modified for the purpose. It is therefore, very quick to empty by gravity feed into the pounds below, which enables work to commence with minimum interruption. Welding, carpentry and joinery, engine servicing and repairs, painting, blacking and general boat maintenance are available on site
