This walk starts at Christ Church, Govilon, and guides you around the heart of the village on roads with and without pavements and the canal towpath. It is the shortest of the village trails but makes up for this in the number of interesting sites. The route takes about 45 minutes and involves some steeper climbs and one set of steps which need care. A few diversions are highlighted off the route to explore other village treasures.
We have produced a walk guide that can guide you around the village (available from various book stores). If you cannot get hold of this, or just want to read about the history of the village centre, take a look at our online walk sheet that describes the trail and its features. Links to further content about important aspects of the village are included.
