What springs to mind when you think about autumn? Is it the amazing colours, the musty autumnal smell in the air or the crunch of leaves underfoot? Walking by water makes you feel good at any time of year, but when you can admire the red-gold reflections in the rippling canal, swapping the pavement for the towpath is a trustworthy way to enjoy a happier day.
This is the time of year for crisp, dry days that are not too hot and not too cold. It's the perfect season to leave the car at home and commute to work along the towpath instead. Our canals often offer an alternative to busy roads and using them as part of your daily commute gives you a sense of wellbeing that no car or bus journey could. Look at our map to see if your office is close to a canal.
