A short circular walk starting from Preston Community Hall and taking in Nuns Walk. About 25 minutes.

The next in our walking series is a short circular walk starting from Preston Community Hall.

Apparently, Nuns Walk is the old trail that nuns and other visitors would take to reach All Saint’s Church. This public footpath was renovated in 1995 by Preston Parish Council. Takes about 25 minutes to complete.

Take special care when crossing roads at Cranswick Foods. The walk can be very muddy and waterlogged in places after prolonged rain.
