Barlow Lakes

About

From Barlow village we take country lanes, footpaths and bridleways to go into Monk Wood. We’ll then visit a small country chapel at Cowley Mission, then go down to a bridge over the river and on to Barlow Trout Fishery where we’ll stop for a picnic – please bring a packed lunch.

We cross the river again and take the field paths back to main road to return to the village hall.

Walk organised by Joan Westwood
