Walks & Trails

For those thinking of the little Claymation penguin, Pingos or hydrolaccoliths are low hillocks which were formed 20,000 years ago during the last ice age when water beneath the surface froze to form lenses of ice pushing soil upwards. The Great Eastern Pingo Trail is a chance to follow 12.9km (8 miles) of tracks and trails on the eastern edge of the Brecks, and explore these unique features of the landscape.

Visitors should also keep an eye out for the basin mire that has developed on the site of a former lake, now a home for dragon and dameselflies, as well as several species of waterfowl. The trail joins the Peddars Way and on Stanford Training Area, which is the country's main battleground and amounts to 17,500 acres of unofficial nature reserve.
