WALKS

These are all circular walks unless otherwise noted. You only need to arrange your transport to and from the meeting point. Any marked * tend to be in the form of detailed explanations of short sections of the canal and its relationship with the locality; and, as such, are less suitable for young children.

Dogs are normally welcome (except where indicated) and must be kept on leads at all times.

 

WORK PARTIES

Venues may change at short notice, always check with Derrick Hunt before turning up.
