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.
An easy to manage walk with dogs, very close to the M6 exit.
A choice of paths here, either along the canal or the river. There's more to see on the canal route, and the path is in good condition.
A handy 2-mile (35 mins) circular dog walk on tidy grassland that keeps dogs reasonably clean in all weathers.
Easy to find pub, close to the start of a dog walk.
This is a former deer park with 2,400 acres of open space - including 7 lakes. The terrain is a mix of heathland, woodlands, wetlands and marshes.
The paths here meander through a fine mix of woodland, meadow and waterside. The area is evidently a popular spot for local dog walkers, and we didn't see anyone without a dog!
This is a lovely place to mooch with the pooch in a nature reserve within a couple of miles of Junction 12 on the M6.
This is a delightfully rural canal side walk, even though the roar of the traffic on the M6 motorway is never far away.
The woodland here is perfect for dogs to really let off steam and thunder through the trees at speed.
A rural walk over the fields before returning to the village pub, where solicitors rub shoulders with shepherds - and dogs get a good welcome too.
There are a number of trails in this nature reserve west of Congleton, including an easy access trail.
