Details

The Trail wanders through woodland and impressive stone cuttings along the towpath of the disused Barnsley Canal from Walton through to Old Royston.

Anglers Country Park is a good place to start exploring this section of the Trail in either direction and has some additional circular tracks to be explored. A 200m section on quiet lanes at Old Royston connects to another stretch of the former canal towpath through Rosyton (a further 2 miles).
