Beacon Canal Loop

Meet: Beacon Country Park, Visitor Centre

Time: 10.00am

Cost: Free

Join the Rangers for a lung-filling 8-mile hike around the undulating landscapes of Upholland, Appley Bridge and Dalton. Leaving from Beacon Country Park the route drops down across Upholland through Dean Wood until we join the canal at Gathurst. We then head across to Appley Bridge before climbing back up to Beacon Country Park via the Ashurst Beacon Monument. 

This walk is aimed at relatively strong walkers and will be set at a moderate pace. The route is a good introduction to long distance walking and will follow footpaths that may be muddy in places. 

All under 18's must be accompanied by an adult. Sturdy footwear and sensible clothing is advised.

Booking is not required for this event.
