This is the short pound between locks 4 & 5 on the Atherstone flight. There are two set of mooring bollards one for each lock and there is a large space in between. The coffin dodger in the middle of the picture is not, as one might think, sitting in the space between the two lock moorings: no he has positioned himself between two bollards.
He must have a licence so he has a copy of the rules. Being a coffin dodger is not a good enough reason to break the rules.
