We were surprised how much wildlife we spotted along the canal - there were fish, dragonflies, all different types of water birds, including grey heron. You can walk from Stroud centre to Stroud Brewery - it’s a really charming walk.

This part of the canal has undergone a rejuvenation and there are lots of interesting cards/boards and bar codes to scan for interactive voiced details. From the smell of Billiard Table cloth manufacture, to historic cranes.

We walked the diverted section of the canal (through the old rubbish dump) past the old mill where it passed under the Dr Newton's Way Bridge. Nice peaceful part of Stroud - though shame about the traffic noise. Lots of picnic benches, and information boards.

We took the bus from Stroud towards Stonehouse and walked back along the tow path into Stroud- level made up path and interesting things to see along the way. We also walked from Stroud towards Chalford- not quite so well maintained paths in places but...More
