Back to all Seth was wanting to share a few
Hi there, I am Steve and welcome to my blog.
We are currently starting to explore more walks around the area to find new locations which are on our door step but not yet discovered by us which are beautiful for our eyes but also dog friendly. We headed out to North Elmham with the dog and the family, parking at Church Ln, North Elmham, Dereham NR20 5JU.
On arrival we discovered from the map in the parking area there is a site called Millennium Woods in the vacinity which is closed in for dogs, see the link below.
Once you enter the Norman Chapel ruins you are taken aback by the beauty of the area. What a delight! Around each corner new scenery to take in. There are several routes you can take in this area, one of them leading you towards county school.
The area is a lovely terrain for walking dog, it’s soft underfoot and once through the first gate your dog is able to walk on grass of varying lengths even if on a short lead. This will be kind to older joints as there will be less impact with the ground as there would be on a concrete footpath. By not being roadside it allows your dog the freedom to explore alongside the beaten track too, giving them the opportunity to use all of their senses. Remember this is burning energy aswell, so resulting in that satisfying nap when you get home. You can enhance this element if your dog is responsive to edible treats or a particular toy by making them sit or lay down while you hide the object just a short distance away and then send them to find it. Make use of the ruins, felled trees, stumps, undergrowth, benches, gate posts etc to hide the objects behind or under.
The meadows beyond the ruins will bring you closer to nature together and is a great place to interact with your family and pets. Do you have any locations that you think are suitable for less able walkers and their pets?
Please add photos of any and let us know where they are so we can continue to explore these amazing walks.
So, go on. Explore North Elmham. Then tell me how you find the location.
