A nice short walk to get away from the busy walk ways and traffic. The canal is nice and clean and it's good to see some of there pubs and restaurants that back on to the canal.

Starting in the city centre with several pubs at the canal side you can walk in either direction, go towards NFFC and watch boats going through the lock into the Trent, well worth the walk and plenty of places to catch a drink or two.

It's a nice walk if you are in the area, I would not go out of my way to visit it. The canal is nice, the buildings are well kept too, it's similar looking to Camden's canal without the shops, colourful people nor market. There...More
