About this event

The Trent & Mersey Canal links the Mersey to the River Trent and hence the Humber and thus Liverpool to Hull. It was the first of the major inland waterways, a key component of the industrial revolution.

The walk is a level, wheelchair accessible, hard surfaced, 6 mile round trip along the Trent & Mersey Canal tow path from Stoke on Trent Railway Station to Westport Lake. There are cafés and RADAR key toilets at both ends of the route: a simple South to North route.
