Join the IWA Lichfield Branch for an easy 5½ mile walk with 3 stiles along footpaths, some rough ground, and on a pavement. The Canal Path is signposted throughout with a series of black and white signposts, which indicate the route of the canal restoration.

We leave the car park by a sports field and pick up the towpath of the Ashby Canal at the northern portal of Snarestone tunnel. We follow the towpath to its terminus by bridge 62, from where we walk over rough ground towards Ilott Wharf. Here we cross a series of fields before entering the outskirts of Measham. On reaching the High Street we turn left to arrive at Measham Museum, formerly a train station on the Ashby & Nuneaton Joint Railway. Here we follow the line of the former railway for a while. At Measham Lodge we cross the road and follow the infilled line of the canal to Ilott Wharf, and from there back along the towpath to our starting point.

Meet 10:15 for a 10:30 start on Thursday 8th September 2022 in the car park of The Globe Inn, 4 Main Street, Snarestone, Leicestershire DE12 7DB.
