Unique staircase locks. Built around 1780 & still an impressive feat of engineering. Great location , lovely walks along the towpath & a cafe. Poor signage makes it difficult to find but ask anyone in Bingley for directions.

At the moment due for re-painting, maybe they give a truer picture of the history they represent than when newly decorated. They are a must-see; and there is a cafe now at the top which appears to...

We were fortunate to visit the Bingley Five Rise Locks a couple of years ago when it was under some restoration work and we were allied to walk through the locks whilst it was empty. Fascinating and a once in a lifetime experience. We have been back recently to see it operating in its glory after the restoration and would... More

We went here last spring and watched boats go through the lock. Would definitely recommend it if you are in the area, there also nice cafes nearby for a snack/coffee/tea and lots of walking routes too!
