Brackenfield Heritage Trail is an 8k/5-mile circular walk along Brackenfield’s ancient lanes and footpaths. It takes in breath-taking views and glimpses of a thousand years of rural life. Starting at The Green it ascends to Highoredish Viewpoint and returns to Brackenfield via Berridge Lane Nature Reserve, Woolley and Ogston Reservoir. There are twelve Information Points with QR codes so smartphone users can view text and pictures and hear sound clips of local voices giving a fascinating insight into this beautiful area.
