Bingley Three Rise Locks is a staircase of three locks on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal at Bingley, West Yorkshire, England. It opened in 1774 and was a major feat of engineering at the time along with the larger Five Rise opened at the same time and several hundred metres further up. The lock comprises a staircase flight—the lower gate of one lock forming the upper gate of the next lock.

In 1985 the locks were designated Grade II* listed status.[1]

In 2007 the lock gates were refurbished.[1]
