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

A42 Junction 13 Nature Reserve dog walk, Leicestershire


A great place for a dog walk, and an intriguing open air industrial heritage experience for anyone vaguely interested in the past.


At New Lount Free car park.  Information boards which explain the on-going transformation of the site into a nature reserve.


Good walking here, on well-defined footpaths. Be aware that there's also a bridleway, and this is well separated from the walking trail. The ground gets quite soggy in wet weather, and so this walk isn't suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.  Throughout the Midlands any number of country parks and nature reserves have been created from spent industrial activities, but what makes New Lount special is that there are pictures and maps that explain what was there before. Walking through the woodland today, it would be impossible to guess what this looked like 50 years ago.

Lovely location near M42

Great location for a short 30 min dog walk around a looped nature reserve. Mixture of loose grit and mud paths. Picnic tables and benches scattered around site. Dog bins.
