A foot and cycle route, mostly along the canal; wheelchairs can do 99% of the route, but route away from canal has stairs and cannot find an alternate route. Between two stations, both in shopping areas, it's not a pretty route, going through some industrial and residential areas, but it's a straighteners one, and one with very few obstacles....
Route around leisure centre unnecessary as you can just carry on along the road, but it's a nice shot green diversion!...
