This walk follows the towpath running parallel with the old Lagan Canal the route is obvious.

Starting from the car park and Picnic area at Soldierstown Bridge we soon see the picturesque Soldierstown Church up on the left where the engineer responsible for the Lisburn-Lough Neagh section of the canal, Richard Owen, was buried in 1830.

The Broad Water is a man made feature, built in a natural valley in order to retain a sufficient head of water to accommodate the navigation.

Today this area acts both as a breeding and wintering ground for a great variety of wildfowl.
The path continues behind the lock-keepers house (privately owned) and eventually emerges into the village of Aghalee.

Having reached Aghalee we return the way we came.
