Poulter Country Park
Enjoy a walk around this pleasant country park in Nether Langwith. There are two waymarked trails taking you to the park's viewpoint and the nature reserve. At the viewpoint there's a sculpture entitled 'Top of the World' which reflects the area's stone age past. There's far reaching views here across the countryside to Lincoln cathedral.
The limestone paths are well surfaced and include a nice sculpture trail. It's great for flora and fauna with wildflower meadows attracting lots of butterflies in the summer months. Also look out for various dragonflies around the pretty ponds.
Adjacent to Poulter Country Park is Scarcliffe Park where you will find a series of lovely woodland walking trails.

The parkland and woodland are ideal dog walking country so you will probably see plenty of other owners on a fine day.

Head north from the park and you could visit one of the highlights of the area at Creswell Crags. Here you can explore a wonderful limestone gorge on the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire border. There's good walking trails, lots of interesting wildlife and a fascinating museum where you can see bones of lynx, beaver and wild pig dating from the last Ice Age 9,500 years ago.
