Boatlock Station for Families

View from Gatehouse Road

Boatlock Station is up Gatehouse Road. This structure is now a power plant that houses three turbines. There is a fine view to the east. Walk 40 yards to the north and look to the west for a fine view of the first level canal. The first and second level canals meet at this location and there is a drop of 20 feet between them. This drop in water powers the turbines. The mills to the east are the Hadley Mill and the Valley Paper Mill.
