Gallows Bridge is ideally located for the canal enthusiast at the junction of the old Bradford Canal and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The last remains of the Bradford Canal are now a canal basin at Junction Bridge. Access to Saltaire Village is just along the canal and Bingley 5 Rise Locks are located a short distance away as are many other Yorkshire attractions.
Adjacent to Shipley Railway Station, Gallows Bridge is easily located by road, just off the main A650 and only 20 minutes from the junction 26 M62 via the M606.
"I booked a company boat cruise with these guys as a bit of a treat for my team. The day was exceptional and Aaran the boat captain shared lots of local and boating knowledge with us. Brendan, his second in command and his onboard lock keeper, showed us how to operate the locks and even get involved!.. the cruise even included a visit to a local canal side pub for lunch... highly recommend and will certainly do it again. Thanks guys much appreciated....Richard Armitage"
