Trent Lock is a major waterway junction where rivers and canals meet. It's a good spot to view one of England's awesome rivers - and a great place to spot boats too. Trent Lock is the first lock on the Erewash Canal; a large settlement grew around the lock because it was a busy meeting point of waterways. It became known as ‘Waters Meet' by boaters.
