Save Our Footpaths - get off the beaten track, this circular walk is along some footpaths which are not often used. Unsurprisingly not the best of scenery either; the best parts are the canal section and the pub lunch at the end. However, it's an excellent walk if you need the exercise or if you want to get away from it all; apart from a possible horse rider you are unlikely to meet anyone on the footpath sections. The footpaths are across either fields with crops or meadows, so it's not a good route in winter when big fields may be ploughed. You may encounter cows so take a walking stick to fend them off. There is a mixture of gates and footbridges - all in good order and the route is fairly easy to follow; the return route along the towpath is probably the best part. This walk includes instructions for walkers from moored canal boats.

The walk is probably best suited to teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled such as strong trainers or stout shoes, but boots will be best; and avoid wearing shorts as you are likely to encounter nettles. On your route there are no refreshments or other services except at the pub at the start and finish, nor are there picnic tables or bench seats. On Sundays you may need to book in advance for their excellent carvery with your drink; an excellent finish to a good walk.
