It is a pleasant walk however it has a way to go before completion but when it is it will be 5 stars. its a shame that dog owners have no respect for the effort and hard work involved by leaving their dog mess everywhere

The canal has been renovated and is now a relaxing walk through countryside and new housing. There are several locks along the way although we did not see any cabal boats. Lots of swans on the water.
