The five locks down into Chester are hard work.
The first two locks are in typical suburban surroundings but as you approach Chemistry Lock older parts of the city come into view.
shot tower dominates the area.
One of them houses The Old Harkers Arms, a spot on pub with at least six real ales and top class food. Expensive but you get what you pay for. After the hard work of the locks we felt we deserved a treat and having moored the boat by Tescos we partook of lunch there.
