  • Decided on a walk along the canal and check out the locks, unfortunately no boats going through today but a nice relaxing stroll in the March sunshine  more »
  • We went here in February this year and the the place was nice but the coffee shop was closed and we could not find anywhere to park. In the summer I think it would be a good place to visit!  more »
  • Lovely walk along the canal starting from Hirst Woods, Saltaire up through to Bingley 5 rise locks and stop at the cafe before turning back. Ample car parking at Hirst Woods and easy route, mostly fla...  more »

  • Lovely attraction! The Five Rise Locks are really cool to watch in action, though it's not a quick thing. The locks are full of British heritage. There are quite a few signs dotted around to explain some of the history and how the locks work. Overall an interesting little sight to see! Also there's a cafe beside it which is definitely an added bonus!
  • It's a short walk from the railway station across the motorway. Once you cross the foot bridge, you will see the canal and you come to the 3 rise locks first. A little further up, you'll see the 5 rise locks. It's amazing to think that cargo used to be hauled on boats all the way back and forth, from Liverpool to leeds 200 years back. It's a feat of British engineering. There's a cafeteria next to the 5 locks. Nice ambience. It's a delight to see the house boats parked alongside.
  • The five rise locks area an awesome feet of engineering. Well worth a visit whether you're a canal fan or not. As a bonus there's a great cafe at the top of the lock flight.
  • A steep path up the side of the locks makes for a challenging walk, run or cycle! The path is gritty (so not generally slippy) but there is a difference is levels at the bottom creating a sort of small step which may prove challenging for some folks. At the top is a slalem gate which makes for a very challenging end to a bike ride up the hill!! Worth a try though. Plus lovely cafe at the top which you can take a well earned break at, dog friendly, full meals, cakes and ice cream.
  • Really great little place to stop and idle away a few hours. Watching the canal boats come up or down through the five locks to the upper or lower canal is fascinating. Nice tea rooms for a bite and a drink.
