Save Our Footpaths - get off the beaten track; although the outward part of this circular walk is along an excellent canal towpath, the return route includes footpaths which are not often used. The canal is one of the first to be built in the country and part of our industrial archaeology. There's a lot of variety in the scenery and the return route includes a track in a deep cutting through rock, excellent views across the shallow valley, a long, wooded section, electronic innovation research labs, and two old ancient narrow stiles that are difficult to cross and will require some agility. There is also one section of tall dense ferns where the narrow winding path is difficult to see. There are no fields of animals, but you will have to cross two fields of crops; and there are some low hills to climb. The walk includes instructions for canal boat users.

The walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, (may need help with one of the stiles), but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are no refreshments or other facilities except for the occasional bench seats. However, the pub at the start and finish has toilets and food so if you book in advance, you should be able to get a good meal with a drink; an excellent finish to a good walk.
