This is a lovely interesting ramble over some of Gedling’s most attractive countryside. It’s flexible because it can be shortened or lengthened depending on weather, aching joints, complaining children or simply the time factor. The shorter walk around Woodborough is suitable for most people. The detour via Lambley is much more interesting but far more challenging, with two lots of steps and awkward gates or stiles through some of Lambley’s gardens. Cows with calves could also be a problem. Be warned! Above all, look about you as you walk, possibly with binoculars. There’s so much to be seen.
