Fifty seven feet is the longest “go anywhere” narrowboat but, as the shortest locks are also wide, I think you can take a 60′ boat through them diagonally .

Brandon Lock on the River Little Ouse is 40 foot but only gets you another mile or so up the river.

Living retirement in the slow lane.

20 years hiring, 6 years of shared ownership and a Continuous Cruiser since 2007 but still learning!
