Audlem Online is publishing this week a selection of six local walks, all featuring the canal at some stage. These walks have been selected for a new leaflet which is in preparation. Once printed (and it will be a low cost, one colour production), it will be distributed at Audlem's Tourist Information Centre at Williams' newsagents.
If anyone spots any problems with the directions given, please let the webteam know. For those unfamiliar with the area, the suggested walks should be used in conjunction with the Parish Paths map or OS Explorer 257, available at Williams' newsagents or the Post Office. The directions will also be published in the 'Visiting Audlem' section of Audlem Online — click Information/Visiting Audlem/Local walks.
Moss Hall and the Canal
A 30 minute walk with fine views of Moss Hall, a Jacobean mansion.
From the Square, head north up Cheshire Street, past the Car Park and cemetery to a lane on the left, with a sign to Moss Hall. Descend the lane to a stile on the left and a footpath which follows the fence and hedge before crossing the large field with views of Moss Hall. Cross a stile and, going straight ahead, climb up a smaller field to a stile which leads down to the Shropshire Union canal.
You can explore the attractive area around Lock 15 before turning back up the canal towpath past many moored narrow boats to return to the village past more locks and the Shroppie Fly and Bridge pubs. At the road, turn left to return to the Square.
