About Us

Maunsel Lock Canal Centre and Tea Shop is run by Nicky. Persons of all ages can enjoy the tranquillity of canal life from the towpath or the waters perspective. Disability access available.

The walking and cycle routes are even and well positioned so you can relax while you explore the canal. You can also follow the Somerset Space Walk, and should you need refreshing then the Maunsel Lock Tea Shop is a great place for a cream tea, cold drinks, ice cream, sandwiches, light lunches and especially homemade cake.

“ Thank you both for the lovely afternoon we had last Friday and for all you did to make it so enjoyable”
