Walk leader :  Stephen M.   
Walk details : This is an easy 5 1/2 mile walk along a well maintained canal towpath. The walk begins at the RHS Bridgewater car park, from there we make our way to the canal path and then a 2 1/2 mile walk along the path to the The Old Boat House pub. where we can use the outdoor facilities to have lunch. Although we can bring our own food there is an expectation that we purchase a drink from the bar. After this we retrace our steps back to the start point. In addition to our lunch stop we will also be making a second stop for refreshments at The Moorings pub half a mile away from the car park. This is a fully accessible walk suitable for a mobility scooter.
