Nice to walk up through the 3 and 5 locks and have a coffee at the top. Lovely on a nice day. Just on the outskirts of Bradford

This is a must see for anyone who is interested in canals. The three staircases of locks truly are impressive,not to forget the industrial buildings alongside the canal, it is worth taking time to watch the boats pass up and the way in which the locks have to be filled to allow passage through, the coffee shop at the top...

fascinating construction - well worth a visit just to see the canal barges go through the locks - not to mention the little coffee shop at the top.

Depending on how interested you are in watching the boats navigate the locks this can be a nice walk and a coffee or a pleasant few hours walking up or down following a boat. Everyone seems very chatty when watching the boats and the guys that worked the locks are very friendly and helpful.

We arrived just in time to see a narrowboat entering the highest lock and we're able to watch it descend all five. This made it most interesting.

Always a nice place to go walking to for a quiet trip out. Beautiful Bingley spot, especially on either a summer day or when it's frosty.
