Vicarstown Walk and Talk

Sharing is caring!

Natural & Built Heritage Walk on the Grand Canal Laois

Meeting at Crean’s Pub Vicarstown at 2 pm – 4.30pm on Saturday 31st.

We will walk from the Grattan Aqueduct to the Camac Aqueduct approximately 3km.

Along the way, we encourage people to take photographs of plants, wildlife and built heritage on your mobiles or bring a camera if you have one. Some of these photos will be digitally designed for our canal signage project in 2020.

A walk and talk on the built, cultural and natural heritage of the Canal which was completed in 1791. We will examine some of the stories, architecture, and plants which we find along the canal.

At the end of the walk, we will go to Crean’s Pub for some light refreshments and examine photographs which participants collected along the way. Photos from mobile phones can be uploaded to our facebook page on the day.

This event is family-friendly and there is no charge but donations are welcome.

Contact us on 0862102397 or or via facebook.

Hope to see you all on Saturday.
