The Lock-keepers’ Pad starts at the Victoria Locks. It leads up the hillside through the forestry on the far side of the road (cross the road safely at the marked site). The route ends up at the panoramic Flagstaff picnic site on Fathom. This guide gives you an insight into the history and wildlife of the path and surrounding area.
