Walk Description

From the Yearsley Woods Car Park, turn right and follow the access lane into the heart of the woods. Ignore all paths off to the left and right, and continue straight on to meet a building. Walk to the left of the building and continue back into the wood. At the next junction, turn left and then follow the path to the left. Then, turn right to keep to the left of one of the Higher Fish Ponds. Turn left when you reach the track and follow it down and around to the right. Ignoring the other paths, you’ll eventually reach a point where the track turns sharply to the right. Here, turn left down the path and across the top part of the Lower Fish Pond, across two footbridges. Turn left and follow this track until you reach a series of junctions. Keep to the left at both junctions, and then follow this track, again ignoring all other paths splitting off to the left and right. Eventually, a path branches off to the right – keep left here and follow the path until it joins with another. Turn right to return to the car park.
