What a nice place to visit in Autumn. Makes a great photo too with the trees changing colour and the boats coming through the lock gates.

Set in lovely Yorkshire countryside, the locks and canal are beautiful to either see or travel through. Watching boats go up and down the locks is fascinating. Excellent for children to see how they work. There are great walks alongside the locks and canal with a Rick bird life around too. Any age would enjoy seeing the locks and walking... More

A must see in the summer. Perfect for a romantic or family walk. Or even a day out with a picnic. A little part of true Yorkshire. One of the best places to see if your in the north. Good educational visit as well for youngsters to show them the locks.

I completed a walk along the canal from Skipton to Leeds and came past here as part of the route. A sight to behold and it makes you proud of our industrial heritage.

Enjoyable walk. I walked from bradford to Leeds centre and found the walk beautiful. Lovely now the leaves are turning and the 5 rise locks are magnificent to see.

Lock keepers happy for us to help.Answered all our questions and made us very welcome. Only downside is that it is so poorly signposted for a tourist attraction,many visitors must miss it or drive past.

Ever since moving to Bingley as a 12 year old in 1967 this has been a magical place and now I have introduced my own children to it. Watching a boat go up or down the locks is always a treat and an educational experience which, of course, dates back centuries. Shouldn't be missed.

Stunning sequence of locks. A must visit if you like Canals, but interesting for anyone, especially if you have the time on a warm day to watch the progress of a narrow boat as it traverses the system.

A fascinating feat of canal engineering, the 5 locks being the deepest in the country. The locks are in pleasant scenery and if in operation when visiting, this completes the occasion. There is a cafe close by serving hot & cold drinks, snacks & ices and pleasantly staffed.
