The canal provides an ideal setting to explore the area, whether it be on the water or by foot.
Everyday many people use a section of the canal to walk along. It may be part of their daily route or just an occasional stroll in the evening.
Walking along the towpath allows you to observe the wildlife and take in the tranquil atmosphere; an ideal way to spend part of your day. Access points are frequent and there are pubs every few miles if required.
Please note that there is a towpath closure between Blacksmiths Bridge to Chatter Alley. Fencing has been erected at both ends of the closure which we strongly urge towpath users to adhere to. The area is inspected on a regular basis by County Council staff to monitor the slippage and closure. Further updates will be published upon investigation.
