The Llangollen Walk

The Pontyscyttle aqueduct which carries the Llangollen canal & towpath 1000 feet over the River Dee 120 feet below in a narrow iron trough and is both the longest & highest navigable aqueduct in the world.

Kennet & Avon Walk

The lady's pool is a particularly broad stretch of the Kennet and Avon canal designed to look like a lake and forms part of our Kennet and Avon Walk.

Lancaster Canal

The partially restored Lancaster follows an interesting route into the Lake District & passes close to the sea as it provides excellent views of the Cumbrian hills.

Oxford and the Cherwell Valley

Between the beautiful city of Oxford and the fine town of Banbury

A beautiful walk following the Oxford canal as it meanders along closely following the River Cherwell.

The route can be followed in either direction.  From Oxford it heads north from the heart of the city following the Oxford canal.  It passes the two links to the river Thames before closely following the Cherwell valley on a three day journey via pretty golden stone Oxfordshire villages to the fine town of Banbury.  For a short section the canal and river join together and for the majority of the route they run side by side. 

 

The Oxford canal was built as a contour canal - following the contours of the land to minimise costly locks and tunnels.  Consequently it closely follows the river giving it a river like feel of its own.  Near Kings Sutton the canal and river cross, but instead of an aqueduct the river just flows into the canal and out of the other side.
