Plan of the nine locks at Fonseranes at Béziers on the Midi Canal
Actually only seven of the locks are functional, after the seventh you are diverted across the River Orb via the Pont Canal (which the
British Sunday Times newspaper once described as "a Roman aqueduct"!) to the double depth lock which lowers you into the port of Béziers. The eighth and ninth locks can still be seen on the original
route of the canal, they lowered you into the River Orb and you rejoined the Midi Canal just below the port of Béziers.
