Lovely spot for a walk. Two sets of locks are interesting and a feat of engineering. Although busy on the day of our visit it was still peaceful and tranquil. Nice way to slow Dow the pace of life.

Yes up Park Road for approx 400 yards. Climb the hill and turn left at the crossroads on Beck Lane , carry on to a mini roundabout and park somewhere there. The locks is down a short road for about 50 yards
