Leaving the barge lock and walking out alongside the river (opposite RSC), there is plenty of wildlife and flora to see. Buildings are left behind and woodland, fields and open spaces soon come into view. Be aware that there are two sets of wooden steps to navigate.

The first part of the walk is easy going along a wide path where the swans are in abundance and there are lots of people walking their dogs and... More
