Some nice looped walks around here, with the addition of different fitness equipment around the loops which makes it a bit different for all. It's clearly popular at peak times as it has free parking, if the road is getting badly potholed now. The only...More

I visited Nightingale Woods in Swindon yesterday, with a Walking Group. It is a very good place to visit, with lots of nice walks and trees.
