Easy 7 miles / 11.3 km
A leisurely walk from the interesting village of Long Itchington, a mixture of old and new, taking in a lengthy stretch of the Grand Union Canal from the Stockton Locks, continuing along to pass the Bascote flight. The atmosphere is peaceful and serene, the canal and locks, wide and the surrounding area, beautiful and rural. Boaters happily cruise their craft on their slow, unhurried journeys, a world away from the pressures they have left behind them for this slower pace of life. Eventually the canal is left behind for a bridleway, enclosed by trees, then a single-track road amidst lovely country scenes and finally, field-paths back to Long Itchington.
North of Southam on the A423, park just off the Leamington Road junction, where there is a small car parking area.
