  • Is this body of water is beyond redemption? We hope not. Stop the pollutants getting directly into this once pristine canal.  more »
  • Super place to walk alongside the canal on the towpath and watch the boats and wildlife go by. Quiet and peaceful area to walk.  more »
  • Gotta love this place. Catch it in the sun or in deep snow and it will blow your mind, so picturesque great for photos and a lovely walk along the famous locks. Great way to cycle the day away too
  • A wonderful waterway meandering through the west country. Most of it is easily accessible for walking or cycling as it passes through spectacular scenery and historic towns.
