On 2nd July 2017 the 15th annual Great Nottingham Inclosure Walk will once again take place. Meet at 1:30pm at the southern end of Queens Walk, near Wilford Bridge. The walk will be lead by Dr. Graham Piearce, an expert on trees, who will show us what can be found of interest in the Historic Parks and Walks of this inner city green circuit.
This annual walk celebrates the 130 acres of Recreation Ground given to the people of Nottingham, forever, by the Inclosure Act of 1845. It consisted of 3 miles of walks and 5 parks (now 4) running round what was then the edge of the medieval town, now part of the inner city.
The route starts at what was once the stile leading to the Wilford ferry and ends on the Forest by the Inclosure Oaks one of which was planted in 1865 to commemorate the 1845 Act and the other150 years later to commemorate its continuing benefits.
The 5 miles of smooth surface are suitable for powered wheelchairs or scooters. A bus or tram can take you back to the City centre and an excellent cafe on the Forest is a favourite place as the final destination.
A certificate will be given at the Inclosure Oaks.
