The old canal towpath
The old canal towpath
A winter walk along the towpath of the former Donnington Wood canal. This originally served to connect coal pits at Donnington Wood to the road network near Pave Lane. It opened in 1768, and closed eventually in 1904, since when much of the visible course of the waterway has been lost to dereliction and neglect. A public footpath follows this stretch of the towpath.
