Kick-start your year with a National Trust winter walk in Nottinghamshire

Dog walking at Morden Hall Park, London, in the winter. Morden Hall Park is a serene oasis in the heart of suburban London.

Burn those Christmas calories by getting out and about on a winter walk at National Trust places across Nottinghamshire.

There are miles of pathways to enjoy offering people the chance to get out and about in the fresh air and take in the beautiful surroundings.

The excitement of Christmas may be over but now is the perfect time to try out those new walking boots or a new camera and capture family moments or stunning landscapes on an invigorating winter walk.

Andy Beer, Director for the National Trust in the Midlands said: “Whether you want to get fit, spend time with family, or just admire the beautiful countryside; welcome in the New Year with a visit to your local National Trust place.

“Why not mull over this year’s resolutions while rambling along wooded paths or through country gardens; or get the children planning which ‘50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ activities they’re going to complete in 2016.

“Even if it’s grey outside, just wrap up warm, pull on your wellies and plan your adventure.”

The special places the National Trust looks after are packed full of walking trails and great views that look even better with a dusting of frost.

Clumber Park is one of the best places to walk in Nottinghamshire to put a spring in your step during the cold winter months.

With over 3,800 acres to explore there are plenty of wintery adventures to be had at Clumber Park.  The variety of trails stretch over parkland, heath and woodland, past the towering spire of the chapel and around the glistening lake.

It’s the perfect place for an afternoon stroll with family, tramping through the fallen leaves on the woodland floor and spotting the abundance of wildlife that is ever present – even on the coldest of days.

Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/midlands to find a winter landscape to explore.

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
