The Bugsworth Basin Heritage Trust Waterways Walks offer a splendid opportunity to look at Britain’s waterways network. These ambles are very informal and will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in our waterway heritage.

Times of Walks
We usually start at around 10.00 am and aim to finish at 4.00 pm, the length of the walk being about 5-6 miles. All walks are on Saturdays unless otherwise stated.
Although towpaths offer easy walking, they can be muddy and uneven. We therefore recommend that stout boots or shoes are worn. Similarly the unpredictability of the British weather makes the carrying of waterproof clothing advisable.
We aim to take a lunch break at midday, hopefully in the vicinity of a pub, but as this is not always possible a packed lunch should be brought.
Transport back to the start is normally by private cars which we have placed previously, but if public transport is convenient we may use it.
Notice of Forthcoming walks
A broad sheet giving full details of the next walk is sent to everyone on the mailing list two weeks before it takes place.
Those intending to walk please confirm with the organiser on the previous evening. In the event of a cancellation for any reason then you can be told the previous evening. Wasted journeys can then be avoided.
