About this walk

Over 475 hectares of woodland. A great place to walk your dog off lead. Plenty of space for dogs to run and explore...and for owners too.
Woods are used by Mountain bikers and also horse riding so be aware, although paths are marked for what purposes. Recently large areas of the wood have been used for logging. Beautiful when dry and very muddy when wet.
Lots of free parking. Woburn Abbey is nearby. Easily accessible from Milton Keynes.

Please note: The authorities that preside over Aspley Woods have now put up signs saying dogs must be on-lead in all parts of the woods. Thanks to Mike for the info.

    Dogs do not need to be on leads. Only on designated paths due to nearby grazing farm animals. Most of the time, dogs run free.

    Nice wooded area, lovely all year round. Good in summer to be able to be out of the sunshine so it’s cooler for the dogs
