Took some finding, but great for a scenic walk, I parked on Fairfax Rd just past the Beck Lane/Fairfax Rd roundabout, after looking at the amazing 5 rise locks, I walked down to the 3 rise locks near the Damart chimney, great if you want to get your step count up but just watch out for the cyclists on the...

A great place to walk to along this beautiful canal. There was plenty of activity and some intetesting chats to be had with the volunteers who were working there. Certainly glad we visited, never seen locks like this anywhere before - and to top it all off a lovely cafe and delicious food hust right for walkers and cyclists.

As a boating person I have wanted to visit this for a long time. I never got this way with my boat so as I was on holiday just 1/2hours drive away I had to grab the chance and at least see the locks (both 5 rise & 3 rise) even if I could not take my boat up/down. It... More

You will see a lot of different narrow boats as you take a gentle stroll along the canal with a nice café nearby and you can go into Bingley its self and do some shopping

What an interesting and lovely place to visit. A great place to take in if you fancy a walk by the canal. Also easily accessible from Bingley town centre. There is a little tea-room with toilets and seats to rest and enjoy the view.

For all canal enthusiasts, a visit to the Five Rise is a must, what a feat of engineering, built 200 years ago!!!, today's engineers could learn a lot from the boys who built this. Although our visit was on a wet and breezy day it was well worth it, sadly the tea rooms at the top were closed, we could've... More

We have walked and cycled this route from Apperley Bridge. It's a beautiful route with lovely views along the way. Nice little cafe at the top to stop for a sandwich and a drink after completing the rising paths.

The five rise locks is a lovely landmark - you can walk from Bingley via Fishermans Inns to Shipley - a pleasant & picturesque walk.

Amazingly, this series of five locks rises almost 20metres over only 100 metres. What a brilliant piece of Victorian engineering! which enabled goods to be transported by canal from Liverpool to Leeds. The site is meticulously maintained and easy to access from the footpath or local area. If you're there when barges are passing through you get to see the... More
