Don't miss out on this exciting open day where you'll get the chance to walk over the drained flight, providing a unique view down the staircase at Dowley Gap.
Shake off the January blues and join us for our winter open day.
Visitors will be able to see both the new and old hand-crafted lock gates, while a stonemason will be showcasing this heritage skill.
Our engineers and construction team will show you how lock gates are replaced and you can even have a go at stone masonry by helping us build a miniature bridge.
Our Explorers team will have some fun family activities and you can have a trip around the canals with our virtual reality headsets.
Enjoy a crisp walk down the towpath and then grab yourself a free hot chocolate.
