Windlas/Key for S & W south section

Featured Posts

Morning everyone, due to the Hack lock closure on the Shropshire Union Im now planning a leisurely week down the S & W from Autherly next week. 
 

I think I’ve read I need a special key/windlas for a couple of the locks, is this correct? Will the hire company provide or do I need to purchase separately?

 

Many thanks

As above. Normal tapered windlass is required but the three locks in Kidderminster - Town, Caldwell and Falling Sands - all have the anti-vandal handcuff locks on them. The boat should come with them supplied as boats from the Autherley base will regularly encounter anti-vandal gear.

Handcuff key is required at Kidderminster and I'm sure there is another lock somewhere between Stewpony and Stourport.

 

The hire boat should have everything you need but we used to find there would only be one handcuff key so we used to take one of our own as well.

 

See JP's post above as he has listed the locks.
