Towpath Trek

The Towpath Trek walk involves heading through the town and along the canal path.

  • Booking essential

This is a steady walk with a five minute break along the towpath where we’ll share a brief history of the town, so it’s less informative than the Worksop Walk or Straw’s Stroll, and more a chance to sightsee.
