Burton-on-Trent Rambling Club will also be leading a walk in the parish, Walk 9 Needwood Forest Walk on Sunday 20th May.
2016, 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 email@example.com.
