Nature’s Great Comeback

Join Ian Malcolm for a Black to Green Walk as part of the National Forest Walking Festival.

Starting at the YHA we will follow the route of the former Ashby Canal to its terminus, continuing to Swain’s Park Railway Junction, which was once a heavily industrialised area of clay and bricks. From there onto the ancient Church Gresley Tunnel Woods, along Pit Lane with wonderful views across Trent Valley and beyond, we circulate the new Gresley Woods. On the return we pass the current clay works and back to the YHA along the former Nuneaton to Burton Railway line.

Good Paths with some rough and possibly wet grass. Walking boots or sturdy footwear required. Children welcome. Dogs to be kept on leads. Route approx. 4 miles, with 4 stiles.

Please book your place in advance as capacity is limited by emailing or call 01283 551211.
