Walking routes you might enjoy

Great Whittington - Whittington Mill - Toft-Hill

A lovely gentle stroll (livestock allowing!) which takes in part of St Oswald's Way as it passes through Great Whittington. The route begins and ends at the pub towards the eastern end of the village, then heads towards the remains of the windmill. From there the trail crosses the River Pont and heads up Toft Hill which provides excellent views across the surrounding countryside.

The loop

This is Great Whittington’s ‘go to’ dog walking/jogging route. It’s a great length, more or less 5k, a little bit (but not too much) of ascent, but the views and the variety it offers in such a small package are amazing.
