Great little walk to and back from here. Very quiet and not many people about. Great place to head if you want some peace and quiet. If you're lucky, you might get to see a little kingfisher bird.

We walked from Bridge Street out to the Lock. Beautiful scenery, nice level walk, birds singing, and friendly fellow travelers. The Lock itself is quaint, the blacksmith shop interesting with not too much happening. Don't expect a big show but the site is quite historic....More

This is a great place to go if you are out for a walk. You can visit moneypennys lock which has been all refurbished some time ago. You can visit the museum.

Superb little hidden gem, we cycled from tesco in Portadown and it was a lovely place to stop on the way steeped in history. If your in the area it's well worth a stop.
