Great place to walk the dog and to chat to boaters - no cafe but we took a picnic! Canal Trust members very informative. There also old lime kilns there which are being renovated.

The magnificent Tardebigge church has quite a big car park! Worth a look inside too!

We park on the country lane but there is a car park half way between tardebigge and The queens head pub, Stoke Prior that is right next to the canal.
