The Fonserannes staircase, Canal du Midi, France

One of the most iconic waterways in the world is the Canal du Midi, certainly one of the oldest, and we were looking forward to exploring it. We arrived at the foot of the infamous Fonsérannes staircase of locks at Beziers just before lunch and joined a queue of 3 boats on the curved right bank. We tied up to a convenient tree (there were no mooring cleats) had a quick bite to eat, and then walked along the path to take a look at the task ahead – forewarned is forearmed.
