The Great Towpath Walk

Discover a stunning new long-distance walk from the south to the north of England along inland waterways. This easy walk will take you through some of the most breathtaking scenery in the country. The walk starts at Westminster by the Thames and continues along the Grand Union Canal to the Rivers Trent and Ouse. You’ll pass by charming villages, cosy pubs, and nature reserves along the way. The author has included fascinating historical stories, such as insurrectionists’ taverns, a highwayman’s grave, and practical advice.

Brian Bearshaw’s sharp and observant eye enlivens the narrative. The route is divided into sixteen sections, each with a map and atmospheric line drawings. Details such as mileage, ordnance survey references, and local information centres are also provided. The towpath walking is perfect for both the serious and afternoon constitutionalist walkers. So whether you’re walking from Leighton Buzzard to Newark or from Gainsborough to Selby, this guide makes the perfect companion.
