The locks are impressive because of their sheer number. I enjoyed seeing them and the stroll along the canal path was quite pleasant. Unless you're really into canal engineering I wouldn't suggest going a long way out of your way to visit them but would...More

Walked the lock system two days including the circular attached country walks delightful. We did it in the wet one day and shelter is limited so beware. Overall very interesting place and a worthy attraction.

What an unexpected and neat experience. We stated at a wonderful B&B in the area (Shrewley Pools Farm) and they recommended we visit the locks and thought they may even be in use that day. We were so glad we stopped. Its a lovely area...More

I didn't count the number of locks but there must be a dozen; I wouldn't like to be on a boat traversing them, it will take all-day! The aluminium dragonfly statue by the car park is a masterly design. By the by the car park...More

Tried to visit today for a nice walk. Both pay and display machines out of order. Trying to pay by phone is a waste of time. We left rather than risk a £40 fine. Several other families had the same problem. Some left, others took...More

If you've never seen canal Locks before, Hatton Locks is a very good place to start. There are 21 locks over a 3.2Km. They were opened in 1799. It is a pleasant walk and you will almost certainly see boats coming through the locks. I...More
