Another lock in the waterway…

The Peterborough Lift Lock is a boat lift located on the Trent Canal in the city of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, and is Lock 21 on the Trent-Severn Waterway.

For many years, the lock’s dual lifts were the highest hydraulic boat lifts in the world, raising boats 65 ft (20 m). This was a considerable accomplishment in the first years of the 20th century, when conventional locks usually only had a 7 ft (2.1 m) rise.

A great experience on the whole with reduced seating and covid measures in place! Many a reason to smile – travelling after the pandemic…

Have a beautiful day!
