The canal walk was really nicely done. There’s a pedestrian bridge to cross over the water and walk all around it. Maps show where you are and what happened in the area from there all the way to Williamsburg. Old train track is overtop a...More

Think it would be lovely in the summer when it is very hot! We only walked a small part of it - it looked pretty extensive.

This is a great walk to take after a heavy meal or to stretch your legs. Not very long but very pleasant with plenty of places to sit and take in the view.
