5 Bridgwater and Taunton Canal

Park in Lock Side Car Park (ST307297).

The tow path allows flat, easy walking beside the canal. A grapple is an ideal thing to take with you to fish out the water weeds – these include Perfoliate and Shining Pondweeds and occasionally a little Short-leaved Water-starwort can be found. Fringed Water-lily has declined in recent years due to renewed navigational activities on the canal. The grassy banks beside the tow path yield Grass Vetchling and Smooth Tare.
