Canal Basin WalkCoventry
The Canal Basin is a great place to visit and to commence your walk.
The Basin is situated just north of Coventry City Centre, just outside the city's inner ring road (Ringway St Nicholas) and is well signposted. The old restored warehouses now house restaurants, coffee shops and galleries.
A lovely sculpture of the 18th century canal's engineer, James Brindley marks the start of the Art Sculpture Trail.
The Coventry Canal Greenway walk starts at the Basin and follows the canal for approximately 5 miles (9 kms) to Hawkesbury Junction along an industrial then semi-rural route. The thirsty walker can be rewarded by a visit to traditional canal-side pubs at the Hawkesbury end.
Coventry's Industrial Past
Coventry and its canal provided a start for many famous and successful industrial companies, remnants of which can be seen beside the Basin and the canal. For a detailed description of the walk and the part that the Coventry Canal played in the Cities history, go to the article entitled Coventry's Canal History in this website.
