This is a beautiful waterside walk that takes in the historic Hunts Lock and Vale Royal Locks. Walkers will be enchanted by the number of bird species that can be seen and heard along the way, with a list of ‘recent sightings’ on display at the Vale Royal Locks Office.

The route beyond the Blue Bridge to Vale Royal Locks can be a little muddy during winter but surface improvements are being looked into during 2011.

Vale Royal drive does have vehicle access so care should be taken along this stretch.

The return route takes you through the tranquil Marshalls Arm Local Nature Reserve and back past Hunts Lock to the car park.
