An historic site which is great for flat water canoeing, walking and cycling. In summer is a kiosk selling ice creams/coffees etc, and a shipping container with historical information.

Such a lovely part of the country. Great walks, or just to wander. We have friends who live on their narrow boat in Bugsworth Basin. It is worth a visit to the shop there, which is run for the charity

As a local boater we visit a few times a year. Lovely place to moor boat. Plenty of country walks nearby. Only downside in some areas is the traffic noise but easilt forgotten.
