The 2018 Inclosure Walk on Sunday 1st July 2018 will start near Wilford Toll Bridge, at 1.30pm. Meet at the Meadows Embankment tram stop, Clifton Line.
The walk will be led by JOHN PARKER, Chair of Nottinghamshire Local History association.
This walk goes through all the Recreation Grounds allotted to the townsfolk when their commonable Fields and Meadows were enclosed to give more space for desperately needed housing. No other town in Britain has anything like it.
Much of this ground was laid out as Walks, recognising that cricket and other team games and events need catering for, and play-space, but that the regular Sunday walks of the family were just as important for the Town’s health.
The walk finishes at the Inclosure Oaks, (yes, there are now two), on the Forest, where a certificate will be presented to those completing the route.
Guides will be available to buy on the day, or from the tourist centre, for your future use. The Forest cafe will be open at the end, highly recommended.
