I live near the locks and go every now and again. It is situated in pleasant surroundings and its fun to watch the boats go through. It doesn't take much time to see so don't expect to be spending ages there.

A blisteringly hot day, lovely to see barges going through the locks, totally fascinated me, thoroughly enjoyed a lovely walk on the canal. The lock keepers were very helpful explaining what was happening, many thanks to them.

We walked from Saltaire and caught a bus back. Very easy flat pleasant walk. Pushchair and wheelchair friendly although it will be a steep short push up at the locks. Cafe by the locks.

We walked from Shipley to 5 rise locks and back along the Leeds/Liverpool Canal .A lovely flat walk which is especially nice on a fine day. If you are lucky enough to see boats going through the locks as we were its even better, great history behind the building of locks Great for children and good for bike rides along... More

The path by the canal gets a bit waterlogged in very wet weather of course but otherwise we always enjoy walking from Bingley to Saltaire along the canal - really peaceful and scenic.

Nice afternoon out. Went in the evening while quiet. No parking only in residential area side of the road. Can Walk down along side the locks and then along the canal. There is a cafe too.
