Great walk but really dislike the upper class feel when other people see you walking a English bull terrier was is always on the lead and is extremely friendly with dogs and humans take's the good feeling away from such a beautiful walk

Nice circular walk along the beautiful river. Various bridges enable you to tailor the length of walk according to energy levels. Very good facilities at the main car park. Highly recommended stroll. Although, can be muddy in parts after heavy rain. Bring your boots it's well worth it!
