Clumber Park

Brindley and I were on our way to the Lake District. Although there is so much good between Suffolk and Cumbria, so often in practice we end up focussed solely on getting from A to B, more often than not in just part of a day. This time I had the whole day for the journey, and had planned a nice spot to stop to give us both a change of scene, a good stretch of legs, and somewhere to have my sandwiches – Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire, abutting the A1 and so somewhere I’d been past many times but not previously been aware of.

The estate has a wide range of paths, but the walk around the lake was the obvious one for me

A lovely spot for a walk – it left Brindley rather entangled with leaves and twigs and mud, but that’s the peril of having an American Cocker Spaniel. Time to head on to the Lake District…
