As you may know Grindley Brook has 6 locks! The last 3 of which are staircase locks with a lock keeper on hand to help you if you require it. There is also a popular canal side cafe at Grindley Brook which serves a selection of food and drink. There is also a very good pub just a short walk form the canal called The Horse and Jockey.
When you arrive in Whitchurch a short 15 minute walk along the Sandstone Trail will take you into the town centre, here you will find a number of local shops, bakeries, coffee shops, pubs and supermarkets. Whitchurch also hosts its very own Makers Market on the first Saturday of each month, where a number of stands are set up with local produce, gifts, paintings and much more.
Whitchurch is also plays host to the yearly Blackberry Fair. This is a great weekend in Whitchurch that involves all sorts of fun activities within the town centre and is definitely worth a visit!
