Movanagher Canal, located off Vow Road on the eastern bank of the Lower Bann River approx. 3 miles north of Kilrea, offers a beautiful tranquil setting amidst rolling farmland for a short 1 mile return canal-side walk.

Walkers arriving by car can park at the eastern end of the canal-side access road and proceed to walk along the surfaced access road flanking the canal in a westerly direction towards the fish farm and lock gates.  The fish farm is not open to the public, but walkers can take time to appreciate the lock gates system and wildlife on the canal before retracing their steps to the starting point.  Extra care should be taken due to the proximity of deep water, and careful attention paid to all children and pets.
