Burton on Trent to Barton under Needwood Canal Walk
This walk follows a lovely section of the Trent and Mersey Canal from Burton on Trent to the nearby village of Barton under Needwood. On the way you'll pass Branston Water Park where there's a series of lakes and lots of wildlife to look out for. There's also pretty locks and nice open views over the surrounding Staffordshire countryside.
You start in Shobnall and follow the canal south through Branston before finishing at Barton Turns Marina.
The route follows a section of the long distance Way for the Millennium. You can extend the walk by continuing along the canal to Alrewas where you follow the River Swarbourn through Wychnor Park.
