WALKS

There are many wonderful walks in the Langdyke area. In the East the countryside is generally flat and the going is easy. In the South and the West the landscape is gently undulating and stone built villages remind one of the Cotswolds.

The following walks have all been chosen for organised Langdyke events and all have been well tested.

The buttons will open a description of each route on a separate page so that it can easily be printed if required.

This walk is around Langdyke’s oldest nature reserve – once the home of a racetrack and now transformed into one of nature’s gems

Ermine Street Walk

The route takes in several interesting nature sites, including the Hills and Holes National Nature Reserve, and passes grazed grassland, typical arable fields (with two distinctly different forms of cultivation), some spinneys, hedgerows and even a spring fed pond and related stream/ditch. 

It provides a good overview of the Langdyke countryside and takes about 1:30 to 2:00 hours
