About this walk

Barnack hills and holes is fun to explore. It's a 50 acre site that was a medieval quarry. Small but lots of trails and routes to weave around. Also some public footpaths close to the site for an extended walk. It's not that steep but it's not wheelchair friendly. An average fitness level would be needed perhaps. Paths are thin chalky tracks only, and you can't walk side by side. But don't let that put you off. Dogs can be off leads and love bombing up and down the Teletubby like landscape. There is a section for sheep but its well sign posted. The site is a SSSI, with flowers, trees and nature. It's a popular local walk. Easy to find, small free car park and on road parking nearby.

    Stunning little place. There's lots of different ways to walk around it, we did a big loop and then a smaller one and spent about 1.5 hours there. It's so peaceful, would be lovely to take a picnic. Such beautiful and fun undulating scenery, with tons of wildflowers and butterflies.

    Great walk! Thoroughly enjoyed it and only 40 mins from home. Our pooch loved the rolling hills, very well kept area, clearly signposted for sheep grazing areas and our dog came back from an hour of walking around 4km for us but more like triple that for Buddy!) practically clean on a cold autumn day. Would certainly return. Thoroughly recommend this walk.
