Walking in the National Forest

Last year, marked the 25th anniversary of the creation of the The National Forest. As part of the anniversary celebrations, the Silver Circuit was created.

This 8-mile circular walk passes through Needwood Forest and down into the Trent Valley. It was designed to create a loop from the National Forest Way, which it follows between Tatenhill and the Trent & Mersey Canal.

This walk starts from Barton Marina car park. Helena Pointer has printed guides of this walk which she is happy to pass on to anyone interested – please email h.pointer@tandrpc.org.uk.


The National Forest Walking Festival 2017 will take place between 13 and 25 May 2017, featuring a variety of walks for all ages, tastes and abilities.


This successful festival includes walks within our parish and beyond. Helena Pointer will be leading Walk 49 Tatenhill and Dunstall circular walk on Friday 19th May and Walk 61 Rangemore and Scotch Hill circular walk on Sunday 21st May. The Silver Circuit is also included this year as walk 27 on Weds 17th May. The festival provides guided walks along the whole of the National Forest Way and is an excellent way to discover more about the history and landscape of this part of the Midlands.

Please see the guide to the festival below.
