This was a really great walk. The weather was good as well. Would recommend this walk

Completed this walk on 25/02/12 First section along the river bank is quite muddy otherwise a good, level and enjoyable walk. Waypoint 5 - the gate no longer exists. There are remnants of a wooden fence with what I presume is a metal gate of some form fixed in place either end with barbed wire. It is fairly easy to climb over so not a major problem - there does not appear to be an alternate way around. At the Lock Keepers cottages there is a lady with an attitude problem. I stopped on the riverbank for my lunch and had to contend with a large labrador dog who seemed intent upon getting at my sandwiches followed closely by a very snappy and unfriendly terrier type dog. When I looked to the lady whose dogs they were, thinking she may have the decency to call them to heel, she looked at me and said "they live here" She proceded up the riverbank a short distance and the dogs went with her. Afterwards I got on my way and had to pass this lady again, and again the snappy terrier came running at me. Fortunately its bark was worse than its bite as it quickly backed off when threatened with my walking pole. Again the lady, who lives in one of the cottages, did nothing to control her dogs. Anyone taking children on this walk should be aware of this problem and keep their children close to them when going past the cottages as, for them, it could be a frightening experience.
