Church Donington on Bain

The church Donington on Bain

Start the walk from outside the church, with the church on your left head through the village. You will pass the Black Horse pub on your left and a small village shop. Keep walking until you reach Simon’s Close, which is also on your left. Just after the close, go through the kissing gate to a grassy track that leads uphill, with a hedge on your right and horse paddocks on your left. When we walked this in February the track was wet and muddy in places.

Continue walking along this track and there will be a conifer wood on your left. Then you will walk through a deciduous wood.
