Take a circular walk around Altwinton and along River Alwin. On this walk, you will see history from World War II and learn a bit about smugglers in the 1800s. You will walk on Clennell Street which was used by cattle shepherds and whisky smugglers! As you continue your exploration, take a breather and check out the wildflowers growing along the grass. If you are doing this walk in between June and September, you will be able to see meadowsweet flowers, knapweeds, and wood cranesbills. These flowers also attract butterflies and buff-tailed bumblebees. Please do not disturb the sheep and white faced Cheviots that may or may not be in stells. Please keep your dogs on leads especially when encountering wildlife. Note that you will have to navigate through stiles, kissing gates, and fences. There may be the occasional fallen timber and blockage on the roads. Be careful!Show more
