We meet at Old Presbyterian Car Park at 9.30 am before sharing transport to the Boat Club car park.
Alternatively you can make your own way there, but please let us know.
The walk follows the towpath for 2.25 miles to Shaws Bridge.
The first lock, where we start, known as Molly Wards, after a well-known eighteenth century tavern, is now home to the Boat Club.
Continuing upstream, the site of the second lock is known as Mickey Taylors.
The third lock, where lock, lock-keepers house & stone bridge remain entact is known as McLeaves.
We turn round at Shaws Bridge, built by Captain John Shaw in 1709.
The return journey, back along the way we came, can include a stop at the Old Inn Keeper's Cottage for coffee
