About

This level canal-side towpath walk offers a great insight into the waterway’s corridor as it flows through the town of Middlewich. In
contrast to the busy roads, slow down to the pace of life of the canals.

START: what3words: ///remaking.scoping.treble

DISTANCE: Both routes are approximately 1.6km (1mile) return.

TIME: About 45 minutes one way or 11/2 hours there and back.

SURFACE: Good, level surface of compacted gravel throughout, of at least 1.2m (4’) width. May be muddy after rain and watch out for mooring rings at the side of the canal. The short lane to the canal has an uneven, broken surface.

GRADIENTS: Access to the canal towpath at point 2 is via a short path with a 8.3% (1:12) gradient. The Big Lock route is level. The King’s Lock route involves slopes by the locks, of up to 15% (1:6) over 25m (27yds).
