Distance: 5.3 miles Ascent: 300 feet
Time: 3 hours    
Weather: Surprisingly dry and warm!
Comments: Pleasant walk, Woodland tracks, shore, fields and canal. Rather a long stretch on the canal but that is unavoidable and it is a very pleasant and well-maintained section. There are two tea shops on the shore though we didnít call in.
