Went for a Sunday stroll in the winter sunshine past this local landmark. Very pretty surroundings, very close to Bingley centre, approx 5 mins walk. Fuve Rise Locks cafe right on the locks themselves. Well worth a visit.

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
