Nottingham lockdown walks

Date walked: 22/04/2019

As a non-driver living in an urban area, my walking options have been very limited. This has prompted a lot of exploration of the smaller green spaces within and around where I live (West Bridgford on the south side of Nottingham). I won't bore you with the details of these walks (15 separate walks so far, starting on 22 April up to 25 May). I have constructed this little map using an Excel chart:

Those of you who know Nottingham may recognise the river Trent, the Grantham canal, the Clifton tramline path.

A few pictures:

This green space is less than 400 yards from my house, but I'd never explored it before lockdown:
