Green: A Circuit of Oulton Park

29 December 2019 10:45-14:45


A Circuit of Oulton Park 29th December 2019
Grade: Green Number of dogs allowed: 2

‘A gentle walk centred around Oulton Park Estate and the distinctive heathland of Little Budworth Country Park’.

A short distance from the starting point we pass the entrance to Oulton Park Motor Racing Circuit and from there proceed along the Estate drive.  Leaving this, the trail takes us over farmland and quiet country lanes via Moss Hall Farm (where we may see a few interesting creatures) to Oulton Mill Pool.  Here, about half way into our walk, we will probably take a ‘pit stop’

Continuing initially along a lane we join a path leading into Little Budworth Country Park. Our trail meanders through woods and heathland, passing by a number of small pools along the way, before emerging onto the final leg of the walk.  This path takes us back to the starting point passing ‘The Egerton Arms’ a few hundred yards from the car park:
