Straws Bridge Circular in Ilkeston, United Kingdom | MapMyWalk

Mapmywalk is a cool app for some Winter walks (all around the year too) Wollaton Park has plenty of space to walk but nearby there are other interesting green spaces with short or longer walks or just places to feed the ducks or chill awhile for a change.

The River Trent has lots of footpaths, at Beeston, Clifton or the East of Nottingham but with the potential flooding these are often waterlogged and really cold with a fierce wind chill at this time of year.

Ilkeston-West Hallam’s Swan Lake or Straws Lake is a tad milder and only a few miles away with lots of birds especially the Swans Ducks, Seagulls and sometimes Herons as well as Butterflies. The Friends of Straws Lake have a Facebook and website, link as soon as their ok to post it is returned!
