Save Our Footpaths - get off the beaten track, although most of this walk is along hard or well used paths and tracks, some footpaths are very little used. It is more figure-of-eight rather than circular and has a wide variety of interesting scenery. There is a good mixture of kissing gates, stiles and wooden footbridges, most of them in good order; and the section through the wood has parts that need you to be a little nimble. Although the route is not quite flat, there are no steep slopes. This walk includes instructions for walkers from moored canal boats.

The walk is suitable for children, teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs & buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled will but boots will be best, especially in winter, and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. There are toilets and refreshments at the pub at the start and finish of the walk, but none on your route. Neither are there any picnic tables, but you will find a bench seat by the canal towing path at the best view on the walk, and another in the wood. If you book in advance you should be able to get a good meal with a drink at the pub; an excellent finish to a good walk.
