Maunsel Lock to Creech St Michael

Did you know?

Every hour enough plastic to fill two bin bags is washed into our oceans from canals and rivers.

Starting at Maunsel lock take a gentle paddle south to Creech St Michael before returning to enjoy a bite to eat at the local canal centre and tea shop.

Bridge over canal Bridgwater & Taunton Canal

To start your paddle cross the bridge and launch at the other end of the lock pointing in a southerly direction. This route will take you through the outskirts of Durston before arriving in Creech St Michael where you can stop for a rest and explore the town's many facilities.

To return simply turn your boat around and paddle back with a completely different view.
