For a driving break, parking is fairly easy (except Saturday market day), dog-friendly hotel supplies refreshments through the day, and the dog walk is a nice easy one with proper hard-surface paths to keep your feet dry. The market town was once a really important stop on coaching routes between London and Scotland. Today its handsome market square is a bit less of an attraction than the James Herriot experience just around the corner!

Nice walk without leaving the town
Visited August 2021. A nice walk right in the heart of town, which is very handy. The car park in the Square can be busy but there are two other car parks just around the corner, Millgate and Marage, both off Marage Road. These are slightly closer to the walk but slightly out of the town centre, but all within a short distance of each other. Millgate car park has a small picnic area that looks like it once joined this walk, but when we visited there was no access to the path that way, so just head along Marage Road slightly right of the church until you see the trees. The picture shows the bridge by Millgate car park, still Cod Beck but the other side of the picnic area to the actual walk.
