Lovely walk, a little boring on the road section but made up for it through the woods and the lake sections. I will be bringing my extended family here though as it is a fantastic day out.

Hudson (my dog) and I love to wander around Abbotts Wood, it's peaceful and relaxing, a beautiful place to wander early evening.
