Bosley Lock flight virtual walk

Enjoy a virtual walk next to Bosley Locks on the Macclesfield Canal in Cheshire.

We know that it's not always possible to visit the canal when you want to and so we've put together a virtual walk along the Bosley Lock Flight so that you can experience what the canal has to offer without leaving home.

Active Waterways Cheshire

This walk has been put together as part of our Active Waterways Cheshire programme.

The route

While you're welcome to enjoy the route from the comfort of your own home you can also enjoy it in person.

If you stand with the canal in front of you turn right and follow the canal all the way to lock 12 before turning around and returning to the start.
