Local walks / Wind farm wander

Local walk - Wind farm wander

Directions

The walk starts from the free public car park in Church St, in front of the Olde Victoria pub.

On leaving the car park, turn left along Church Street. After a few yards, pass the Jacobean House on your left, followed by (on your right) the Manor House and St Mary's church.

As Church Street bends sharply right to become Cranford Road, turn right along Wold Road (No.1). Continue along this narrow lane as it goes over the A6 bypass and past cottages on the left until you reach the wind farm (No.2).

At this point, the simplest return route is to retrace your steps along Wold Road - and this may be the best option while the alternative way back is subject to a temporary footpath diversion (see below).

Alternatively, to continue the circular walk, take the cinder track just before the gate to Wold Farm, and after 200 yards your route is crossed by another path. Turn left at this point (No.3) and follow the footpath across three fields back to the A6 (No.4).

Cross the A6 carefully, and pick up the footpath again on the far side. At this point, the path normally crosses the field to emerge at the end of Woodcock Street (No.5) - but the route has temporarily been diverted to avoid the Wheatfields housing development construction site. The diverted path - which follows the field boundary round to the left, and takes a narrow course between two fences - has been reported to be overgrown, uneven and muddy at times. At the end of the diversion, the path rejoins the normal route just before it leaves the field and enters Woodcock Street (No.5) - which leads back into Church St, and to your starting point at the Old Victoria.
