By the canal

What to talk about by the canal

Talk about staying safe and away from the edge of the canal.

What can you see by the canal? Get down at your child's level and point to anything of interest.

Are there any canal barges, people fishing, cyclists, ducks...?

Can you find the number of a bridge or lock?
