The Perfect Dog Walk
While visiting friends this weekend near Preston in Lancashire we had the pleasure of being able take in the scenery at Cuerden Valley Park along with our dogs Toffee and Bertie, who from the looks of things enjoyed the afternoon more than us as it is pretty much doggy heaven.
The Park has everything from amazing woodlands to a river perfect for a spot of doggy paddling as well as a vast meadow fantastic for a game of fetch. We started our walk from the car park by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust Barn following the paths through the spectacular woodlands where we caught a glimpse of the beautiful valley below and gorgeous grazing pastures above, as we came down past the lake to the meadow we and other dog walkers enjoyed a game of fetch followed by some paddling and while the dogs paddled we had a go at making our way across the river via the stepping stones.
This walk is a really nice easy walk only taking between thirty minutes and an hour yet a stunning walk and thoroughly enjoyed by both us and the dogs. A must for anyone who lives locally or visiting the area. For more info visit the website www.cuerdenvalleypark.org.uk.
