Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

A1M Junction 38 dog walk near Doncaster, South Yorkshire


A transformed colliery site that is great for dog walks. Already it's hard to imagine how this green space would have looked. A lot of hard work has gone into reclaiming the land for nature lovers and nearly all traces of industry are now vanished completely.


GPS coords for car park: 53.5640, -1.2087  Getting there:  the directions to the car park for the woodlands are given in the address, and if you click on directions then you'll be able to see this on the map too.  Height restriction (2m) at the Brodsworth woodland car park.  Near to the woodlands:  Refreshments/WCs at the garden centre tearoom, open 0930-1630 and serves meals, snacks and teas. The garden centre is worth a look too.  Steam Museum at the garden centre, steam days vary.


Easy to follow paths lead into the woodland from the car park. To find the woodland use the postcode given in the address  (DN5 7UZ) and note that this is for the woodlands, NOT for the garden centre.

Different postcode

dN6 7FF. Is another postcode for this site. May be better? Sorry still no toilets according to their website

This alternative postcode DN6 7FF is correct. It takes you down Longlands Lane. The entrance to the woodlands is behind a new group of houses still being built on the right. There are no facilities. Free parking.


The existing postcode takes you half way along a lane. Continue to the end and turn left. The car park is just on the left. No facilities and a more hilly walk. Less muddy just now!
