Route Description
A splendid short woodland walk beside the roaring Evan Water. Start at the historic Old Brig Inn and Telford Restaurant. Head northwards along the old road for 500 yards keeping parallel to the motorway. Just before reaching the old telephone exchange (a large, square building), turn left down the edge of the field and onto the old branch line railway bridge across the Evan Water. Cross the stile and continue upstream past the Dragoon's Pool and into the woodland. Return by the same route.
