Cheshire Locks Working Party


We will continue work on Hassall Green lock 57, hoping to finish this lock if the weather is good.


Probably the best place to park for this locks is at Salt Line car park; a country park just under the motorway bridge from the locks (and about a 5 minute walk back to Lock 57). The post code is CW11 4YB but note that the car park it is at the western edge of this post code area. There is currently a construction compound there & the park ranger has asked us to make sure that we leave some spaces for walkers to park. We can park a couple of vehicles on the ramp adjacent to the canal bridge but the slope is very steep!


 Please don't leave cars in the residents parking area on the other side of the canal bridge by lock 57.
