My walk from The White Cross Inn
The pub had an adequate, dog friendly space in the car park. Not a garden, but fake grass and picnic tables. It does the job and the staff are friendly. They kindly let us stay parked there after our coffees and we walked 5 mins, starting on Water Lane next to the pub, to the river (past a farm shop). The bridge in the picture would be a further 30 mins walk from this end which we didn't have time for, but there is a pretty clearing and bench a couple of mins further on. The river is slow, clear and shallow so perfect for a pet paddle! There's also a kids play area on the other side of the river easily accessed by bridge as you reach the river. A pleasant break in our journey, thanks.
