An accessible walk at Ripon

Are you in need of recharging?

Our canals and rivers offer spaces on your doorstep to relax and reconnect when we need them the most.

A gentle walk along a scenic stretch of the Ripon Canal, with plenty of opportunities to watch birdlife or enjoy a picnic.

We've partnered with The Outdoor Guide to create this lovely walk which is suitable for wheelchair users.

The walk begins at the canal basin, which is just outside the city centre. From here it is a gentle stroll to Rhodesfield Lock, passing the former lockkeeper's house.

The path is wide enough for wheelchairs, making it perfectly accessible. From here the countryside opens out before you with options for watching boats, nature and the world float by. You'll also find wheelchair accessible platforms for fishing.

Length: one mile

“I am thrilled that The Outdoor Guide and Canal & River Trust are working together to inspire people to head out for walks along our beautiful waterways. The outdoors should be available to all.”
