Scholes Coppice dog walk near Rotherham, Yorkshire


Walk the dog through the leafy splendour of an ancient coppice, it's a short walk with some appealing sniffing for the dogs and easy paths to follow.


The Bay Horse pub nearby has a bit of a thing about cars and pies. Worth a visit if you share the passion.


Length of walk: approx 45 minutes

Leave the car park and turn left up the road, until the PF sign at the side of No. 2 Scholes Lane , up a private driveway on your left. This brings you into Scholes Coppice, a woodland managed by the Forestry Commission.

Walk over the footbridge until you see a fork in the path, and footpath signs. The yellow arrows indicate the circular walk.  Take the right hand fork and follow the path slightly uphill through the woodland. When you can see houses ahead, turn left on the wide path and continue down the hill. Then follow the yellow arrow pointing to the left. A slight detour here will lead you to an information board, explaining the fascinating Iron Age history of the coppice. Return to the signed path and walk until the next yellow arrow where you go to the left. The field should be on the RHS. Where the path splits, follow the yellow arrow pointer up to the left, past a bench on the LHS. After a short distance you complete the circuit to return to the starting point. Cross the footbridge, now on your right, and retrace your steps back to the Bay Horse.
