This is a must see if you're into exploring England's industrial past. It's actually not Victorian but was opened in 1774. It's best seen and experienced from a boat, but a walk up from the 3 rise is what most people see. It's an easy stroll but a bit steep when you get to the locks themselves. There's a good... More

Truly a breath taking view from the bottom to the top especially on sunny days. Once at the top a well earned ice cream or coffee is welcome from the cafe with its friendly staff.Walking back down you can then take in the 3 rise keep going you take in more locks.

Great to see the locks in action. The lock keeper was very friendly and keen to give local information. Very steep drops so be careful with young children and pets. Well worth a visit and a good starting point for the cycling route.

It's great fun watching the boats navigate this series of locks and the engineering is amazing on such a steep incline. It's surrounded by lovely walks and there's a cafe right next to them, so you can sit and watch the boats go by, on a sunny day it's a great way to pass the time

The occasion was a funeral wake, the staff were very attentive to all our needs. A well presented buffet lunch arrived, well presented and taste was great. A mix of hot and cold goods were tabled. Ale and lagers were not a great selection but were adequate for the occasion, thank you.

A stunning set of Five Rise Locks, which come shortly after the Three Rise Locks when coming from Bingley. A feet of Victorian Engineering - with very deep drops between each lock - requires the services of the Lock Keeper in order to navigate through. Not for the faint hearted!

We have visited this fantastic five rise staircase locks on several occasions when on holiday in the area and always find this master of Victorian Engineering fascinating, there are some good walks along to towpath in either direction, we like the walk towards Saltaire where you will also see the three rise locks on the way. There are many superb... More

Sit and watch the canal boats go up and down this incredible feat of engineering and enjoy the canal side cafe at the top. A worthwhile visit.
