The Category Canals and Rivers is a subset of Particular Types of Walks in the UK. Click HERE to find a List of the Titles of all of the Canals and Rivers Entities which have so far been described in this Directory. Clicking on a Title will link you to the Entity's Full Record.



'Canals and rivers offer accessible walking routes at all times of year. Aside from lock flights, your path is level and there’s little chance of getting lost! The unfolding scenery of a canal-side stroll also takes some beating. Where else could you find such a mix of wildlife, architecture, countryside and of course, the thing that brings it all to life, narrowboats.'
