About an hour or maybe more if you take your time on the park. Flat lane walking with some off lead opportunities on the park at Kingsfold Drive. Some traffic so lead advised.
This is a variation of our usual local walk around Bee Lane, but providing a chance for the dog to have a run around on open space next to Penwotham Community Centre on Kingsfold Drive.
Start at the roundabout on the junction of Leyland Road, The Causey (leading to the new estates by the gas works) and Bee Lane.
A pleasant stroll up Bee Lane. Train spotters can have their entertainment on the bridge above the railway - great views of trains I'm told! Keep going for half a mile or or so. Poo bin is provided at the crossroads about half a mile down the lane.
On reaching the crossroads turn right down the footpath and in a few hundred yards you will see a muddy path leading off to a large playing field on the left. The field is really muddy at this time of year so be warned - boots essential! Your dog can have a good run on the field but keep away from the road, car park, play area and kids football pitch.
Today, we returned by the same route.
Doggy rating 5/10 (the addition of the playing fields raises the rating from 4/10)
