State of the art locks were built at Hatton to flight off stiff competition from the roads and railways in the 1930's. When the locks were completed bands played and crowds gathered to watch the Duke of Kent arrive by boat and cut the ribbon. Today...more

It must be the equivalent of a marathon for a narrowboat but this lengthy staircase of locks is very picturesque and must be beautiful for a canal side picnic. On Father's Day we dodged a few showers but it is an excellent all weather location...More

Love walking around here, as it is very quiet and safe. I would recommend to wrap up if walking in winter, as it gets very windy. Still it is worth the visit!

This is a uniquely fascinating location in which to see the multiple locks at work, enjoy the location and chat to the boat owners as they pass through. The car park is very reasonably priced but we suspect must become very crowded at holiday times....More

Firstly if you enjoy Canals then this is a good place to visit, especially when the Canal is busy. Watching them in operation is interesting. The Tow path and adjoining grassed areas are great for walkers, cyclists and picnics. The Cafe is perfect for refreshments...More
