We've just been to a wedding in Surrey and took the opportunity to get a mini boating fix. The Basingstoke Canal was quite near so we went to Brookwood and parked the car to go on a walk along the canal. On the way to the Brookwood flight we saw this Cormorant - at least I think that's what it is!
On arrival at the flight it was clear we weren't going to see much boating action as this lock was drained for the fitting of some new gates.
A slight barrier to navigation?
Nice gates though...
