About this walk

A fabulous short one-mile roundtrip walk from the hamlet of Throop to Turners Puddle and returning via a different path to Throop. 99% off-road. In that short distance there are four great places for a paddle or a swim in the River Piddle! Roadside parking at postcode DT2 7JD

    Recommended as above original post. The route of the loop is well signposted from the parking place. Path condition excellent though may be soft underfoot in Winter or wet conditions

    Only found 2 of the water stops, both excellent but must have missed half the walk. Lots of route signs but for longer trails specifically. Could do with a route map.
