Love walking along the river and do it as often as time and the weather permit. Like walking in Shakespeare's footprints and looking at the trees and wildlife.

We walked through here whilst on a day trip to Stratford. We had visited the church and walked along the river. A beautiful spot, nice and peaceful when we visited.
