Course details

This course offers three separate sessions of guided walks along different stretches of the Grand Western Canal, offering opportunities to learn about the history of the canal, its wildlife and the work involved to maintain and preserve it. Accessing local walks and places of interest can also benefit your wellbeing through opportunities to discover new places, meet new people, and connect with nature. Kingfishers, swans, moor hens, dragonflies, as well as an array of water plants, trees and rural views are all things to enjoy along this easily accessible canal walk. Students can attend one, two or all three sessions, but must specify at the time of enrolment which of the sessions they wish to attend.

N.B. Please let us know if you want to join a group travelling free of charge by bus between Tiverton Bus Station and any of the selected meeting spots.

Meet at Sampford Peverell village car park (EX16 7BT) walk towards Ayshford Bridge and back.
