ABOUT THE WALK – grade:  Moderate Route

I have called this the whale trail as the map looks like a small whale! (no other reason).

What a lovely walk this is. I have found a few secret paths that I am sure only the locals will know about, as well as one footpath that makes you feel like you are walking through a maze. The route meanders through Whittlebury village and emerges at the Church. We then detour over fields which only had one small muddy section and the rest was fine. There are numerous stiles and most were dog-friendly, with exception to two stiles which would only be suitable for smaller dogs. We work our way through a small woods and take in the views of the lake before circling back towards Whittlebury. 

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
  • A drink and snacks.
