This circular waterways walk commences with a long walk along the banks of the Trent & Mersey Canal, then through parts of Marbury Park. The broad path close to Witton Brook takes you some distance (photo on the right), before you turn through Carey Park and Anderton Nature Park; finishing along the bank of the River Weaver. There are very few roads and all the paths are broad and firm, and although a little bumpy in parts, will be good for wheelchairs & buggies but some assistance will be needed for the steep slope near the end. This is a longer version of walk 8366 and includes instructions for walkers from moored canal and river boats.

The walk is suitable for children, teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. There are refreshments and toilets at the pub and a café at the Anderton Boat Lift Visitors Centre which is very close to the start and end of the walk. a picnic tables set near the end of the walk, and occasional bench seats along the route. The walk starts and finishes at the Stanley Arms pub and if you contact landlord Adrian Tomlinsong to book in advance you will be able to get a good meal with your drink; an excellent finish to a good walk, tel. 01606 75059. If you email the landlord will email the menu to you.
