Nottinghamshire - A Dog Walker's Guide

Nottinghamshire - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Jane Broomhead
On a fine day there is nothing quite so enjoyable for dog owners than getting out into the countryside with their pet for a leisurely walk. Once you get off your home patch, though, it is hard to know where you can walk safely with your dog and which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 dog-friendly walks, varying in length between 2 and 6 miles, in the beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside. The walks have been designed with maximum off-lead time and minimum exposure to roads. There are walks beside the tranquil waters of the River Trent at Farndon and Gunthorpe; through ancient woodland at Barrow Hills and Dyscarr Wood; around nature reserves at Bevercotes and Brierley Country Park; and along disused railway lines at Harby and Edingley, which are now havens for flora and wildlife.

All the walks include details of dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes and contact details for the nearest vets. Other practical information includes distance, terrain, where to park, how to get there and nearest refreshments. The route finding instructions are in clear numbered paragraphs supported by a coloured sketch map with corresponding location numbers. There are also numerous colour photographs.
