Walked with a small group. Very pleasant with great surrounding woodland and eventually canal. Especially a flat walk. Very green due to constant wet weather but our day was fine weather. Consequently didn't go down path at bridge over canal as very muddy. Instead went straight down the canal to the furnace. Didn't use gpx. Instructions were easy to follow. Thx for putting it on the ramblers. Going to do the others in the future. Stopped for a meal at youth hostel too!
