Easy walk with little or no elevation. Very muddy areas at the moment so definitely recommend wellies! Very pleasant views and easy to follow trail. Definitely doing this walk again in the spring.

A really enjoyable walk Well signed. As you walk through the vineyard there interesting information on boards to read about the grapes etc. Various wildlife to see. Will do again

We got a bit lost in the vineyard and ended up doing an extra mile, but it’s beautiful and totally worth it (even if we did get told off!). Loved the varied landscapes

Nice walk but just a pointer for dog walkers the first large part of the walk the dogs have to be kept on the lead

Bit repetitive on the way back along the canal. The start, walking through the vineyards was lovely! farmer field with broad beans is totally overgrown and tricky to find the path at the moment (July) but just go with the slightly trampled crops and you'll find your way
