The Works

We will be replacing the bottom lock gates at Parkhead and using the opportunity of an empty lock to remove silt and debris which has built up over a period of years.

Please wear sensible footwear i.e. trainers or flat shoes. Dogs are welcome but will not be allowed in the lock. There will be a space to leave bikes and buggies. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult to go in the lock. Unfortunately, the lock is not suitable for wheelchairs.
