A re­tired lock-keeper has opened part of his for­mer lock cot­tage on the Trent as a mi­cro-pub. Dave Par­rott, the last paid keeper at Saw­ley Locks, was al­lowed to buy the cot­tage when he re­tired in 2014. He ren­o­vated the build­ing, turned one end into a cof­fee shop, and has now opened the Lock keeper’s Rest. It serves real ale, there’s room for about 12 in­side, and more seat­ing out­side. It’s open Thurs­day evenings to Sun­day lunchtimes.
