Cresswell Caves -  Round Evening Walk

 

Its often not easy to find time for a full day walk so I am planning a series of evening walks around Nottinghamshire area.

Creswell Crags is a striking limestone gorge with several interesting caves. Stone tools and remains of animals found there by archaeologists provide fascinating evidence of life during the last Ice Age between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago. The caves will be closed during our walk but have iron gates so you can take a look into them, (bring a torch for this). We reach the caves at the end of the walk so you can spend time viewing as we finish up or we can view them as a group. (The visitor centre for entry/access into the caves is closed at 5pm but you can still get a great idea of what they are like from their various gated entries and their information points along the way.) The local countryside is fields and farmland; this walk initially has a steep path to climb but is then level for the remainder of the walk.

The walk should be take about 1.5 hours

lt\'s about 3 miles in total, quite dog friendly for well-behaved dogs, although the walk is only 3 miles, I’ve included time to look at the caves. If you wish we can follow up the walk by a drink or meal in a nearby pub.

Terrain / Difficulty

One quite steep section at the beginning but after that level paths and relatively easy going.

Approximate Distance

3 miles
