The Pingo Trail

I just wanted to say that we really enjoyed the Pingo Trail. I know this isn't a coastal walk, but it is under your Inland Walks!

You mention on the website that there’s a lot of water on this walk, but we didn’t know quite how much you were talking about! All the way around there seemed to be water, we loved it!

We loved coming across all the many and beautiful Pingo Ponds and arriving at Thompson Water was a real treat. We sat for a while in the hide and just watched the wildlife activity on the water and let time go by as we sat in peace and quiet.

Cranberry Rough, where the swamps are, was also fantastic, almost unreal. It was a brilliant photo opportunity! The information boards here were helpful too to read about the Ice Age and why the swamps have been left as they are.

By the way, we also loved your You Tube video of the trail. It was helpful to see it so we knew roughly what we would be seeing. Thank you.

The Pingo Trail

Hi Beth

Thanks so much for sharing your Pingo Trail visit. I must admit I love this walk more and more! Every time I walk it I'm pleasantly surprised by something new.

The Pingos are so pretty, as is the woodland that you walk through, and I think Cranberry Rough is my favourite bit! I usually walk this trail in an anti-clockwise way, but I know others go the other way. I like ending up walking along the disused railway.

And I agree totally with what you say about Thompson Water and the hide. It is so peaceful, so long as the MOD aren't practising live firing on the training ground!

Glad you also liked the You Tube video!
