Nottingham’s Town Trail nearly ready ahead of annual walk

Information boards are being put up ahead of the annual Town Trail around the inner city.

It will cover five miles of inner city Victorian green walks and parks, and is taking place on Sunday September 26.

The official opening will take place at 1pm at the Wilford Bridge.

The town trail has taken place for 17 years and is organised by the Friends of The Forest.

The trail is designed to be enjoyed by locals and visitors, as the boards will give people information and map out the walk.

June Perry, secretary of the Friends of the Forest, has been part of the walk since the very beginning.

She said: “The walk is very important for people to know about, it is for free use by the citizens of Nottingham.

“We’ve done it every year and it follows all these green paths.

“It is a really lovely green space.”

Mrs. Perry said she hopes the event will promote the green paths Nottingham has to offer, as she believe they aren’t currently widely known.

She added: “We don’t think many people know about it.

“Last year there were around 100 people, all types of people turn up.

“We are hoping this will draw more people in to follow the route.

“We do it once every year and it is five miles all together.

“We give historical talks at every half a mile.”

Each board tells you how to get to the next board and checkpoint.
