Canal is King: A perpetual journey around the Warwick Ring


Travelling the canals with Bill is sometimes a tiny bit weird, often hilarious, always eventful and inevitably informative.

Since discovering the Warwick Ring canal route in the heart of the Midlands, he has a new challenge to conquer, and you will be his companion on this idiosyncratic journey. The Warwick Ring follows five different canals, crossing four counties, connecting two cities, seven towns and many hamlets and villages. It’s around 115 miles long and travelling by narrowboat takes between one and two weeks. Walking it takes a little longer and you will be joining Bill to make the journey, not all in one go, but in bite sized pieces.

These days, when walking the towpath, Bill gets more than physical exercise. He has an eye for the derelict and the decaying, and loves to dig up the amazing history that follows the canal. Travelling through beautiful rural countryside and urban city grunge, chatting with interesting, quirky characters along the way and experiencing the highs and lows of this journey-with-a-difference. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s Go.
