Join Friends of Middleton Park for a winter walk this Sunday

The first of the Friends of Middleton Park’s 2024 Guided Walks is this Sunday (18 February 2024) at 1pm. The group will be holding a guided walk in the Park every month up to November. All walks start at the Visitor Centre, by the lake in Middleton Park.

The Winter Guided Walk in the Park, hopefully taking in some parts of the Park less visited. This will depend on the weather and conditions underfoot. They hope to see and hear signs of spring approaching, maybe hear the Woodpeckers drumming, and generally enjoy the woodlands.

The winter lack of undergrowth means many of the lumps and bumps in the ground indicating past activities are more easily seen – the guides will do their best to tell the stories of what went on in the woods in times past.

With the recent snow and rain, the ground can be a little difficult. So please wear walking shoes or boots, and don’t forget to wrap up warm and dry. Meet at 1pm at the Visitor Centre by the lake.
