This lovely walk starts off at the Weavers Way car park in Briggate. It starts by following country lanes and footpath around the northern side of Honing with some lovely views to the parish church. During the spring and summer months this section is alight with colour from lots of wild flowers and also plenty of wildlife to look out for! After some field crossing the route heads down to Honing Lock which is one of the highlights of the walk with its man-made waterfall. The area is lovely and the perfect place to site and have a picnic! Also Kingfishers might be seen up and down this stretch of water so keep a keen eye out for the lightning blue! The return leg follows the Weavers Way path in the form of the old Railway Line making it a relatively straight and easy route back to the car park.

Do take a moment to walk down to Briggate Lock just a stones throw from the start of the walk as the waterfall is lovely to see and again Kingfishers are spotted here regularly. Also another interesting feature is the remains of Briggate Train Station adjacent to the car park.
