Walk description:

30-40 minutes route walking at an adults pace/60-75 minutes route walking with toddlers

1. Start at Reckleford Children’s Centre, come out of the Children’s Centre and turn left onto Eastland Road. At the bottom of the road cross over at the traffic lights and head down the residential road on the right (don’t head up the dual carriage way). Continue along Earle Street until you reach the end with the Bus Station directly in front of you.
2. Turn left and head down the road to the traffic lights. At the traffic lights cross over and continue straight ahead taking the footpath as it passes just in front of the shop fronts. Cross over the next road and head into the leisure park. Take the footpath off to the left passing between the two restaurants. Then cross over the car park just under the bridge and turn left continuing on the footpath.
3. The footpath follows round the edge of the car park and also has the river on the right. Continue following the footpath under the trees and beside Wyndham Hill and the recreation ground. At a fork in the footpath take the right hand fork and follow the footpath to the road and the pedestrian crossing. Cross over the road at the crossing and turn left to walk along Sherborne Road, taking care as the pavement is narrow and the road is a busy road.
4. Follow the road all the way to the painted roundabout and then turn right taking you along Lyde Road. Cross over Lyde Road and turn right walking until you come to Cromwell Road. Turn left and walk up Cromwell Road.
5. Take the first turning on your left into St Michael’s Road and follow crossing over Avon Close. Continue ahead and at the end of the road turn left down St Michael’s Avenue. You will pass between Grass Royal Junior School and Pen Mill Infants School. At this point cross over St Michael’s Avenue and then turn right down Matthews Road. Follow this road as bends round to the right and then take the turning on the left bringing you to a crossroads.
6. At the crossroads turn right onto Gordon Road and head uphill and then take the first left down Southville. At the fork in the road take the right hand fork in the road to be walking down Westville. At the end of Westville turn left into Eastland Road, walk down the road and after a short distance you will be back at the Children’s Centre.
