Have your say

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre is a haven of tranquillity.

Picturesque Woodlesford Lock is nestled along the Aire and Calder Navigation - and is often a popular destination for those barging around Britain. And it is with the help of community groups such as Woodlesford in Bloom who help to ensure the beauty spot always looks at its best.

Aerobics classes can often be seen limbering up along the edge of the lock.

The stunning spot was recently featured on television series Barging Around Britain.

Political commentator and Strictly Come Dancing contestant John Sergeant rolled up his sleeves and mucked in to help create a new perennial garden along the water’s edge.
