PARKING – Limited parking is available at the pub itself, or around the green in the centre of Wood Street. There are no fees to pay but it can get busy on weekends, especially on sunny days.

THE PUB – This is a lovely pub which serves great food and dogs are looked in the bar area. There is seating outside at the front of the pub and around the side too.

CRAZY DOG NOTES – Many of the paths are multi-purpose use and can be used for horses and cycling as well, so watch out for these if your dog has a problem with them. Most of the walk is wooded and the paths are mostly away from roads except at the start and finish.

WATER – There is no permanent water available on this walk.

THE WALK – From facing the pub, turn right and head towards the green, then turn right when you reach this. You will pass a nursery on your left and then join a path which goes into the woods.

Dog on corner of path at Wood StreetWalk along this path and ignore any paths which lead off it and eventually you will come to a T-Junction. Turn right and continue along this path which runs alongside the railway (there is a good fence all the way along here though). You will eventually come to a bridge – continue straight past this taking the path which bears to your right.

Continue along this and you will see a cricket ground on your right. These are generally very quiet areas unless they are in use. There is no fence around the cricket pitch so your dog could easily run onto it and join the cricket – perhaps keep your dog on a lead past here if you think this is something they might do!

At the end of the path turn right – this path runs alongside the top edge of the cricket ground and also has a car park on your left, so be careful or any cars entering this. Once past the cricket ground walk for five more minutes and you will come to a small bridge. This is close to the end of the path so you may want to put your dog on a lead here.

The path joins a quiet lane past a few houses before you eventually return to the pub.
