A circular walk around Bestwood Country Park in Nottinghamshire. The walk explores the many habitats within the park including heath, woodland, grassland, wetland and gardens and also takes in the park's iconic landmark, the surviving headstock and winding house which has been retained to commemorate the time when the site was home to Bestwood Colliery. Popular with families and dog walkers, the park offers plenty of interest with industrial heritage, plenty of wildlife and spectacular views. Bestwood Country Park is open daily from 10am to 4pm or 5pm. The walk has several long and fairly steep climbs and descents throughout. The majority of the paths are surfaced with stone, but some unmade stretches over the grassland and woodland can be quite muddy after rain and in winter. There are no stiles to negotiate, just a squeeze gap and some kissing gates and single gates. Dogs are welcome in the park and bins are provided for dog waste. There are public toilets near Alexandra Lodge, about halfway round. If you wish to tour the former colliery buildings, check opening times before setting out as they are very limited. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.
