Lacock and Bowood
15 people attending
5 places left
Join Andrew for a walk starting from the village of Lacock, a beautiful village entirely owned by the National Trust and home of Lacock Abbey. The village has been used as a film location on multiple occasions, including for Pride and Prejudice, two of the Harry Potter films and Downton Abbey. From there, we will pass through farmland across to the Bowood Estate and returning to Lacock through country lanes. The village of Lacock has several pubs, so there will be time for a quick drink before returning home.

Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:
Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour
We cannot guarantee that this route is dog friendly - there may be styles to carry your dog across.
Your dog needs to have the stamina to keep up with the group. This may be an issue on hot days.
