Swinton Lock Activity Centre is a charity developed in 2004 to meet the education and social needs of the community
We are based adjacent to the South Yorkshire Navigational Canal and own two narrow boats, one of which is fully accessible. Both boats are used to offer boat-handling courses, volunteering opportunities and pleasure trips to both children and adults.
What we Do
Swinton Lock Activity Centre provides an extensive range of activities and support for both young and old.
Our location, facilities and ample parking also make Swinton Lock an ideal location for meetings, conferences and parties.
Boat Trips & Training
Join our experienced crew for a relaxing cruise along the canal. Learn how to skipper the boat and manage locks.
We also hold regular open days where you can come to meet the staff and sample many of the activities we have to offer.
