We commenced the walk at the old Canal Keeper's House. The walk meanders on the level separated by a Victorian neglected canal on one side and the river on the other. It is a walk I like as there is always plenty of interest. Lovely trees, the canal, the river, wild flowers, birds, and it is possible to peek over the walls and hedges into lots of gardens.
overgrown canal - there are plans to rejuvenate it in due course.

The river meandering along the ends of the cottage gardens
At this stage the river opens out into a small lake.

A road to be explored next time
At the end of the walk a big blazing bonfire.
