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.

Shropshire (and Cheshire) Ramble

A really nice walk through beautiful Shropshire and Cheshire countryside.

The Shropshire Union canal passes through the length of Shropshire and breadth of Cheshire. The scenery is beautifull and it intersects at regular intervals with pleasant villages and towns before arriving in the fine roman city of Chester.

This walks starts in the middle of the Shropshire countryside and offers a number of start points effected by the number of days you would like to walk for.  The route heads north via pleasant villages to the fine mediaeval town of Nantwich.   

Beyond Nantwich you pass the junction for the Llangollen canal and then enter the Cheshire plain.  The plain is dominated by Beeston castle which sits high on a rocky outcrop.  The canal passes close to the castle and the NT property can be easily visited.

The canal travels right into the heart of Chester and passes right along its ancient roman city walls.
