Getting About

Walking

The parish has an excellent extensive network of footpaths, which are monitored by a Parish Councillor, and supported by local land owners. In addition, benches have been recently erected (2016) at various viewpoints by volunteers (click here for more information). The Country Code explains rights and responsibilities of footpath users. Please help to ensure harmonious use of these footpaths by keeping faithfully to the designated paths, leave gates as found, ensure dogs are on leads and bag and bin your dog’s mess in your own bin or litter bins around the Parish. There are no bridleways for equestrian use in the Parish.

Regular litter picks are run by volunteers, so it would be appreciated if footpath users could take their litter home for disposal (click here for more information on Community Led Plan Achievements). Also note that cycling is not permitted on public footpaths.

Within the parish we are also lucky to have Wellington Lakes, which have public footpaths, are one of the County’s best birding locations, and the site of the Parish Angling Club. On the edge of the Parish we also have Queenswood Country Park Dinmore and Bodenham Lakes, run by a subsidiary of Herefordshire Wild Life Trust, with miles of woodland walks, shop, children’s playground and café.
