The National Forest Walking Festival – Walk 45. Exploring Needwood: Wildlife, Woods and History on the Silver Circuit

The National Forest Walking Festival – Walk 45. Exploring Needwood: Wildlife, Woods and History on the Silver Circuit

The Silver Circuit was created in 2016, as part of the anniversary celebrations to mark 25 years since the first trees were planted in The National Forest. It was designed to create a loop from the National Forest Way, which it follows between Tatenhill and the Trent & Mersey Canal. This lovely circular walk passes through Needwood Forest, through the Dunstall Estate and up onto Tatenhill Common. We’ll take a short detour over Battlestead Hill for some commanding views across the Trent Valley, before descending to the valley floor. A final stretch along the Trent & Mersey Canal, with possible sightings of kingfishers, is a relaxing finish to the walk.
