I just [i.e. with both fenders rubbing the canal side] managed to wind a full-size [71ft] nb just above the lock where there is a small widening - kept stern to towpath side.  I did wonder if it would go around in all honesty - but didn't even need to remove a fender!

Wikipedia has a page about Old Ford Upper Lock

The Hertford Union Canal or Duckett's Canal is a short stretch (c. 1.5 km) of canal in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in East London. It connects the Regent's Canal to the Lee Navigation. It was opened in 1830 but quickly proved to be a commercial failure. It was acquired by the Regents Canal Company in 1857, and became part of the Grand Union Canal in 1927.
