M6 Junction 1 nature reserve dog walk, Warwickshire



This nature reserve was opened by David Bellamy and it's a fine dog-walk space with clearly marked paths leading through fields, woodland and a disused canal path. It's really close to the motorway junction but you hardly hear the traffic.

Tricky to find the way in

My satnav didn’t get me to the way in. I saw the way out on Brownsover Rd. Went back to follow digs to Brownsover Hotel, then kept driving past it to the way in. Well worth the effort. Will be back!

Great picnic spot

Great picnic spot with a dog exercise field and very close to the motorway. There is the option to walk further afield but we didn’t as our dogs love the water and may have attempted to jump in the canal. It was a tight squeeze under the height restriction with a roof box on the car but we just made it. Will definitely return,

Great spot

The potholes on the way into the car park are severe, but that apart this is a great spot. Lots of space in the car park on a Sunday afternoon. Easy to get to off the M6.

Anywhere that has a "dog exercise field" is a good place, but we went quickly through that and then along the former line of the Oxford Canal along the ridge-and-furrow grassland, and then into a bit of woodland, and out into more fields the other side. Some cattle were grazing the further fields, but they didn't cause us any issues.

A gem!

At the end of the lane is a car park and through the gate is a picnic area, grass and woodland walks. The canal is beautiful but clogged with algae just now. Easily avoided.
