Walk 1
Black Alder Wood (4.5 miles)


This walk is at its best during a sunny day in summer when you can enjoy the profusion of buttercups, foxgloves and red campions.

After heavy rain, a short stretch of the bridlepath in the forest can be quite tricky but can be negotiated.

Although there is a steepish climb, the effort is rewarded by stunning views and total seclusion.

Along this walk you are able to locate numerous easy geocaches - see here for more information.
