A local Short Walk for the family - Circular walk - Wheelton centre, Whins Lane , Canal, Kenyon Lane

For those new to the area, this is probably the most popular and 'frequently trod' route around Wheelton Village which has good access for pushchairs, is not very taxing and is great for a 'promenade' along the canal!!

From Clock Tower, head along Blackburn Road to Whins Lane. Just before Farm, turn left at style/gate and walk down public footpath towards the canal. Turn right along the canal and continue until you reach the Top Lock Pub. Exit the canal, turn left over the bridge and follow the road around to Kenyon Lane, back to the centre of Wheelton Village.

This route can be extended by exiting the towpath at the next bridge onto Town Lane. If you are feeling more energetic continue to Whittle basin and take the footpath over the bridge on the left to join Dark Lane. Alternatively cross the canal by the metal bridge to the right and exit the towpath by the next bridge onto Moss Lane - which leads you nicely to Malthouse Farm where you can enjoy some good food, drink and canal-side tables in the summer.
