  • Nice area. Not so good for boating due to all the restrictions and closures.
  • Lovely in all weathers. Very popular with runners and dog walkers and there are always people to stop and chat to. Lots of access points so you can walk for as long or as little as you like.
  • Busy canal with boats of all sizes. Lovely views across the Severn eastuary.
  • Peaceful
  • Beautiful canal with an excellent cycle route that leads straight into the centre of Gloucester. You can see various house boats dotted up the canal which is always quite interesting.
