Consider a random walk of a chain of K+1 particles at integer sites, where the chaining keeps each particle at distance 1 from its immediate neighbours. In dimension 1, we showed with Boissard, Espinasse and Norris that the effect of chaining is to slow down the walk by a factor of 2/(K+2). In this talk I will make some remarks for the cases when K is infinite and when the ends of the chain are joined.
