Goytre Wharf is a miniature visitor centre with cafe, toilets and information. There are also boats for hire and an interesting marina. The outward route follows the canal, where I saw herons and kingfishers as well as ducks and moorhens. After leaving the canal there is a climb up to the pub, but that is where you can claim your rewards. Return through ancient beechwoods rich in wildlife.

I endorse 25/06/2006 comments. I suspect the farm is always ankle deep in manure. I found out the hard way! My advice is to skip WM3. The alternative suggested is tricky and not very scenic. A better option is to continue on the canal to bridge 81 and simply follow the road to WM4. Other walkers met at the pub confirmed this. Also, directions at WM9 are not too clear (or I had a bad day!), resorting to phone GPS to find my way back to Goytre Wharf.

Apologies we seem to have lost your identity. Please do get in touch so we can thank you for your useful comment.

A favourite walk and pub. In reverse avoids a steep climb just before pub. After heavy rain the farmyard 2 can be ankle deep in mud and manure. Crossing bridge 79 avoids this, after crossing turn left, follow canal for about 200 yards, then follow stream keeping it to your left and you will meet road between 4 & 5.

A very enjoyable walk, a stile has now been provided to the right of the gate at point 9.
