Description and Walk
Our video, below, shows a circular walk which takes about 1 hr 20 mins, but there are other ways to walk, and you don’t have to go for so long.
Our route was as follows: By the Danish Camp's car park, find the signpost for the Circular Riverside Path and follow its direction to find the river.
Once by the river you can only walk in one direction. Keep walking until you see the road bridge with its arches on your right (shown in the video). Just past the bridge you’ll find another sign pointing the way to Willington Dovecote.
Follow this sign past lakes on either side of you, and then past open fields. Immediately after the fields you’ll see another sign to Willington Dovecote and then you'll see a bridge.
Just before the bridge is a big steel gate. Go this way if you want to walk the more scenic route beside the brook on the home leg. If not, cross the bridge and take the tarmac path back to the Danish Camp. The path by the brook takes you back to a small bridge that you already crossed on the way out. The tarmac path goes straight back to the Danish Camp’s car park - it’s a bit quicker.
You obviously won't remember all that, so why not print-out the pdf at the foot of the page?
