'Canals and rivers offer accessible walking routes at all times of year. Aside from lock flights, your path is level and there’s little chance of getting lost! The unfolding scenery of a canal-side stroll also takes some beating. Where else could you find such a mix of wildlife, architecture, countryside and of course, the thing that brings it all to life, narrowboats.'

Overview

'This Website was started as a way of recording walks we had done. We later added a lot of stuff about efforts to reduce our carbon footprint ... The walks pages are frequently updated, with new walks added, but the energy pages less so ... We have hundreds of free self-guided walks ... for you to read, download or follow using the on-line OS maps.'
