Try this festive season walk, if the weather ever allows. The walk should take about two hours, moving briskly to keep warm. There are no styles and although the tracks over the commons can have "soft" going in places after wet weather, this is not a walk where you need wellies to wade through mud.

Dogs Christmas Tree

Dog walkers who use Rodborough Common have for many years decorated one of the tree with dog-to-dog greetings cards (!) and baubles. Since our children were small, the tree has always been a traditional target for a walk as close as possible to Christmas Day, when weather allows. The decorations and cards usually max-out the weekend before Christmas, though they started to appear this year in the middle of December.

The starting point is the Reservoir car park, at 10:30am 27th December. Contact Karen like here to book you a place for lunch at the Golden Fleece, which we'll drive to after finishing the walk at about 1.00pm.
