Walks around Northcliffe

There are now several walks on the Heritage Website. These include: a Heritage Walk, a Bird walk, a Wildlflowers walk, a Bat walk  and a series of Ageing well short walks

We now have 9 walking maps, each with the walks instructions and a map, two of these have a shorter and longer walk so there are 11 walks in total. They range from 10 minutes to an hour. Each one takes the walker to a bench or two! We couldn't fit all the walks onto one map so there will be 4 summary maps showing the walk from different entrances to Northcliffe - from the main gates; Cliffe Wood Gardens; Moorhead Lane; Avondale Road / Lynton Drive (for Old Spring Wood).

You can find all the details on the Heritage website site www.northcliffeheritage.org.uk
