Canal heritage walk with family fun
Sunday 26 June 2016, 10:00

The Wilts & Berks Canal Trust walk, on June 26th, is completely new for 2016. Members of the public, friends and supporters, are invited to join volunteers on a Heritage Walk, retracing the original route of the ‘Ippey Cut’ from the Chippenham town wharf (now the bus station) to Pewsham Locks. At the locks, there will be stalls and activities for children and adults, including a special appearance by Frankie the canal horse, and excellent fast food from Mr Nudlz.
The Heritage Walk will be suitable for all ages: about two miles there and two miles back. Keener walkers can continue on to The Bell at Lacock, following a beautiful mile and a half stretch alongside the restored canal; there will be a minibus back for a small donation.
Registration is at the Buttercross, Market Place, Chippenham (SN15 3HD) at 10:00 and the walk starts at 10:30. Entry fee: £5 per person or £10 per family group.
