Bingley Three Rise Locks
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 2007 the lock gates were refurbished with full replacement of the gates taking place in December 2015. Hand crafted English Oak gates weighing 4.5 tonnes (5.0 tons) were swung into place on the locks in a £3.5 million modernisation programme.
