Overview

Trent Lock is a major waterway junction where rivers and canals meet. It’s a good spot to view one of England’s awesome rivers - and a great place to spot boats too. Trent Lock is the first lock on the Erewash Canal. A large settlement grew around the lock because it was a busy meeting point of waterways. It became known as ‘Waters Meet’ by boaters.

Trent Lock is where the River Soar meets the River Trent, and where the Erewash and Cranfleet canals also reach the Trent. Consequently, it is the point where the counties of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby all meet. We visited on a lovely sunny afternoon and...More

What a lovely well looked after area. A pub, a restaurant and a tea room, what more could you ask for whilst out on a nice sunny stroll along the canal path. Lots of jolly boaters out with a happy wave and friendly greeting.
