Robin Hood Way leg 1
LEG No.1 - Nottingham Castle to Bramcote Park 7.5 miles
Nottingham Castle - Nottingham Canal - Dunkirk - Highfields Park - Nottingham University - Wollaton Park - Bramcote Hills
As you will see from the photographs the weather was poor with intermittent drizzle mixed with showers of mainly light rain. The light was particularly poor for photographs but I have no options but to use them.

My starting point to the Robin hood Way, the gateway to Nottingham Castle

I think the route has changed from it's initial launch in 1985, the distance has increased to 110 miles.

The infamous Robin Hood outside the castle

Just down the road we pass the oldest Inn in England Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem

The route follows the canal giving a very different view of the centre of Nottingham. Raindrops clearly visible in the water, and umbreallas in use.

Leaving the canal the route enters a very quiet and peaceful University Park

Numerous squirrels approaching, hoping for food to help them through the winter

Further down University Park with the trees just beginning to shed their leaves

Wollaton Hall from the golf course.
