Join us for a 6 mile linear walk along the Rufford branch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.
Walking has been proven to have many health benefits which contribute towards physical and mental wellbeing. So let's get together with like minded people for an enjoyable interactive stroll along our wonderful waterway.

We will meet at the Ship Inn Car park. Have a short briefing. Then walk along the canal towpath through stunning countryside towards Rufford Marina. Where we will stop for a break before walking back.

This walk is a total of 6 miles long. (3 Miles there, 3 Miles back)

Well behaved dogs on leads welcome.
Families welcome.

The walk Starts at 1pm but its ideal if you arrive before then.
Good walking shoes/boots are recommended. We also recommend that you bring waterproofs incase of rain.
