Join the Canal and River Trust at the beautiful and historic Tinsley Marina this August to have a go at lock keeping.
This canal was build 203 years ago to transport goods all the way to London and beyond (in the days before trains and lorries). The marina is now a beautiful green area, surrounded by colourful narrowboats and nature.
This family-friendly activity is suitable for all ages with an interest in canals, boats, locks and how they work.
Have a go at moving a lock gate, watch as people navigate the lock in a pontoon, and create some lock gates using LEGO. There'll also be crafts and activities to keep teeny tots entertained.
