These wonders of 19th century engineering, the Marple Locks, which were fully restored in 1974 are the second deepest locks in the United Kingdom and were built in 1805 to connect the Lower and Upper Peak Forest canals. This spectacular flight of sixteen working locks, surrounded by a beautiful countryside and scenic walks raises the canal 209 feet to reach a height of 518 feet above sea level at Marple. With an aim to protect and preserve this site, the Marple Locks Heritage Society was established in 2003 and it continues to strive towards this end. Admission is free and the locks are open throughout the year.
