ROAM FROM HOME

We’ve designed a range of walks around Brightwater suitable for all ages and abilities.

The guides are available to download below.

They’ll also be available to pickup from multiple venues across the patch over the coming months.

Walking is a great way to explore the patch and celebrate our beautiful landscape and wildlife.
