Great little walk to and back from here. Very quiet and not many people about. Great place to head if you want some peace and quiet. If you're lucky, you might get to see a little kingfisher bird.

We walked from Bridge Street out to the Lock. Beautiful scenery, nice level walk, birds singing, and friendly fellow travelers. The Lock itself is quaint, the blacksmith shop interesting with not too much happening. Don't expect a big show but the site is quite historic....More
