A place to explore
A place to unwind

At the heart of Middlewood Locks are the three canal basins connected to the River Irwell. This is a place to relax, and enjoy sunny days (contrary to popular belief, the region has the same annual rainfall as Milan).

The waterside environment will be home to houseboats, gardens, woodlands and adventure playgrounds.

Healthy living
Healthy social life

Middlewood Locks promises a healthy and enjoyable life with areas of greenery, interesting walking routes and canal-side beauty. A gym will help you stay fit and a local pub will be somewhere to relax with your friends in the neighbourhood.

In 2013 Manchester was voted as the UK’s best city to live in
