Walk description:

This walk can start anywhere on the prom, it is quite a distance, but completly level and away from the road. When you get to the end of the prom, cross over at the traffic lights, keep`walking for around 5 mins and on your left is the street Rushley Drive, continue down this street and at the end is the path that leads to the Canal. When you reach the Canal turn right and continue. Eventually after 2 to 3 miles you will come to the Aqueduct, continue along this path and you will pass Moor Lane, White Cross and the Hospital. The closest and easiest route to town is via a car park next to the town hall. Just look on your right for an opening. There are some pubs just off the Canal, as well as easy access to town. You will pass a number of bridges while nearing Lancaster some will have steps, some will be inaccessible and some will have ramps. The best way off the canal is aldcliffe road as this is completely flat, but there are ramps that allow for access to town.
