“Lovely walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is just lovely for strolling along. At the right time you can see nesting ducks. Nearby you can have lunch in the mill area (food is super).

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The canal is so beautiful it is a longish walk down it but worth it. its so peaceful and you can stop for a drink and a sit down further down. at the start there is a lovely little cafe the food is great and the service/staff were brilliant. you have to pay in the carpark but the price is reasonable. it is a lovely day walking down the canal when the weather is nice. id recommend this to everyone
