Exploring Bancroft Basin, Stratford upon Avon Canal Exploring Bancroft Basin, Stratford upon Avon Canal

Meet Craig at Bancroft Basin

My partner is pregnant so we're just trying to get some exercise here by water to help our fitness. I work for BT in an office, so I've been sitting down all day and this is a great way of blowing the cobwebs off. We always walk beside the water. It's a nice way of having a bit of a walk round and getting out of the house. I especially like being by the water at this time of day when the tourists aren't around and it's nice and quiet.

I go to a gym in the town as well as walking the canal because I'm trying to get back into fitness. We live near the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal by the railway station, and we can walk all the way into the centre of Stratford town from our home just by following the canal. We come here every week, and when we've got the baby we'll definitely be able to push the pram along the towpath as well.

I think that after my partner’s had the baby, she'll be coming along the canal even more. She says that when she's on maternity leave she's going to be walking a lot with the pram to keep her fitness up.
