Good walk
This walk was good. From the station it was easy to find the town, and the river, but then I did have some trouble working out which side of the river I should be walking on and actually getting to the riverside to start walking. One or two more pointers on that would have been helpful. But it was fine really and a very nice walk once I was on the river.
