Lock29, a unique leisure destination

Lock29 started life as vision to breathe new life into the canal side destination and rethink a critical, abandoned space with such creativity that the benefits for the community will be immediate. The diverse offer within Lock29 provides something for the whole of Banbury and beyond. It is incredibly exciting not least because there is nothing like this in the district, but because there is nothing like it in the region. Lock29 is a unique leisure destination that seeks to bring the community to the canalside as well as increase footfall to the town from visitors from all over the UK.
