What we're about

Dog friendly Walks by Water takes you on a journey through the landscapes of an England where rivers wind through enchanting countryside, sheer cliffs stand guard beside the mighty sea, swans glide serenely over romantic lakes and ancient canals echo with the toil of thousands of labourers who dug them through the meadows and forests of old. Keep fit, meet interesting and friendly people and see breathtaking sights most of us can only dream of.
