  • Top 10 winter strolls

    26th November 2020

    As the days shorten, we still want to get out for some fresh air but probably not tramp across muddy fields. Here we pick our favourite 10 strolls that can all be done within an hour or so, generally along park, forest or reservoir tracks with good surfaces, which means they are more suitable for less-able/younger walkers. Check for Covid restrictions if you plan to visit any of the cafes.
