IWA Walk from Sutton Cheney on Sunday 14th April 2019


The Warwickshire branch of the IWA undertook a short walk along a stretch of the Ashby Canal on Sunday 14th April 2019. Assembling at Sutton Cheney wharf they walked up to Bosworth Battlefield Centre before descending to Shenton, from where they embarked on a round trip to  Shackerstone on board a DMU of the heritage railway. Once back at Shenton it was a short distance along the towpath back to the wharf, where they enjoyed lunch at the cafe.

The Warwickshire branch were very appreciative of the canal, and many of them continue to cruise the full length of the canal from their various bases.
