Pretty as a picture ittle village with a medieval dog-friendly pub, river that's perfect for cooling the paws, and an accessible walk on a hard-surface access lane.

Linear 2 mile walk, the first section is on an access lane and fully accessible. With your back to the Drewe Arms, turn right and walk down to the river bridge. Turn right after the bridge (dogs can run through the stream) and walk along Wood Lane. To start with the stream is on your right, and then you go round a left turn and away from the water. Jem was off-lead here, as the lane is a no through road, and gives access to a couple of farms much further on and the houses you're passing. On a wet day the hard surface is an absolute blessing to keep your feet and the dog free from mud, although on a hot summer day the walk isn't so good. After a good 10 minute purposeful striding you get to a corner where the lane bears left and there's an unsurfaced track/footpath ahead. Take this, and there's a further half-mile of easy walking. And then turn round and return the same way. In Summer I think I'd prefer to spend time getting Jem in and out of the river with a ball, and admiring the village.
