Get off the tablet and on to the towpath Whether you have fished before or have always wanted to try, join us at our open day, come along and get down into the lock and see how the locks work and what our engineers are up to, as we fix the locks. While you are with us, come and learn to fish from our team of professional, fully qualified angling coaches. (All the bait and equipment is provided, so all you need to do is book in and turn up on the day.)
