THE SDC car park in Cainscross is free, shoppers can park and ride or walk, as I do.

The canal towpath takes you right into the centre and is a shortcut for many walkers and cyclists, where everyone greets each other as they pass.

Get some fresh air and exercise on the walk that National Geographic says is one of the most beautiful in England.

Bravo to all the volunteers working hard to clear it and put in more mooring places.
