Some ideas for countryside walks

(1) Take the train to Earlswood, walk through the lanes to the Lakes maybe stopping at the Craft Centre. Then walk on to The Lakes station for the train home.
(2) Alternatively, nature lovers may chose to take a footpath route through Clowes Woods.
(3) Lakes Circular Walk
This takes you around the outside of each of the pools.
(4) Earlswood Circular Walk
The walk takes you through open fields and surfaced towpaths with some road walking.
Please note : Some sections of these two circular walks may be boggy in wet weather
