A stunning June day, not a cloud in the sky and a lovely time to walk along the permissive path from Lobbs Farm Shop. I strolled across open meadow, the citrussy scent of clover, long grasses and birdsong fills the warm air before descending down into the wooded area. Incredibly tranquil, extraordinarily lush and green and with a feeling of isolation. Its like a sanctuary for nature to thrive. Its been a dry couple of weeks so the footpath is more accessible than ever as there is hardly any mud. Enormous ancient oak trees, wild iris, massive foxgloves and wild rhododendron are just a few of the plants that you’ll spot along the way. A stunning walk and it won’t cost you a penny! (well… maybe when you spot the nice things to buy in the farm shop!)
When I did this walk in October after a very dry September and only just got away with a pair of hiking boots. A little later on in January I walked through here and it was very muddy- I highly recommend you wear your wellies!

Be sure to follow the path and keep your dog on a lead at all times.
A yummy fungus in the woods!
