One mile walk to Hawkesbury Junction
Listen beyond the faint noise of traffic and you’ll hear birds calling you onwards. Each step brings calmness as you follow the water and steep yourself in stories from historic buildings that surround this one-mile walk along the Coventry Canal.
Interesting benches dotted along the way tempt you to linger. Hawkesbury Junction holds the beating life of canals - it’s where waters meet and people gather to stare. Charismatic iron bridges criss-cross the lapping water and murmurs of the past are held firmly in every brick. This isn’t a walk of remote rurality, it’s an escape of intrigue and leafy calm.
