    A trip to Water Meadows

    I think we’re very lucky to have Water Meadows in Nottinghamshire. Located in Mansfield, Water Meadows is both a family orientated swimming centre as well as a place for the more serious swimmer with a 25 meter competition pool.

    It’s the fun pool that tends to draw the crowds and last Sunday I took my youngest daughter to experience swimming there. Sophie is only two and a half and I’m beginning to introduce her to swimming to help build her confidence before we consider lessons in around a year.

    The first thing to bear in mind when arriving at Water Meadows is that car parking comes at a cost given the

    Family walks, Vicar Water Country Park

    One of my favourite short walks in Nottinghamshire is around Vicar Water Country Park. If you’re not familiar with Vicar Water then I’d definitely recommend taking a look. It’s situated just off the main high street that runs through Clipstone and backs onto Sherwood Pines.

    Given its location, it’s not surprising that the Spirit of Sherwood visitor information and welcome point is found on the main entry car park. This is a crucial piece of woodland that helps knit together broader Sherwood Forest around some of the main visitor attractions.

    Car parking until recently has been free although now a preferred donation of £1 is requested when you arrive. The main visitor

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
