Roddlesworth Woods (Again)

We spend another Sunday morning at Roddlesworth but, for a change, parked up at Abbey Village rather than our usual spots on the road leading from Tockholes.

The approach from Abbey Village led us on small road across the dam of the lower reservoir where we observed the signs and the dog stayed on the lead, past the farmhouse and stables and over the bridge to the middle reservoir.

From here we crossed the dam and wandered fairly aimlessly along some of the smaller woodland tracks, looking for an elusive woodpecker that could be heard, but not seen, for a good stretch of todays walk.

Eventually, we found ourselves near the Vistors Centre before heading back down to the upper reservoir and across the dam to return on the far bank to near our starting point. Not before though the dog had gatecrashed a party of three other better behaved dogs and attempted to steal the various balls that they were playing with.

After a couple of hours of off lead walking we found ourselves back at the car, with a tired a muddy dog as usual. Such fun!

As always, a great place to walk the dog.

Doggy rating 9/10
