I’m lucky enough to walk down my garden path and straight out onto fields, even though I live in the city of Bradford. If I turned left however I would walk onto an unsightly housing estate. Luckily for the dog there is a great circular walk, and luckily for me it feels like I could be in the middle of the Dales sometimes.
There’s a path through some woodlands and a stream running alongside. The trees are full of Wood Pigeons, Blue Tits, Jays and other birds, not to mention squirrels. I’ve also seen a heron in the stream more than once.
From one part of the walk you can look down over the centre of Bradford.
If I’m lucky I will see some deer, there are a few that live wild in the long grass and woods.
