1. The offices of the Trust and the Partnership are in the old Hollingwood Lock House.

The public parts of the building are fully accessible; there are two toilets for the disabled. The towpath is built to Access for All standards.
We run boat trips every Saturday from April to October departing from the Hub. Click here for details.
