The Pennings Nature Reserve is along the River Dove.
Views across the water meadows and the Church Tower makes this a great place to come for a relaxing walk, or a picnic.
Look out for seasonal nature notes throughout The Pennings. These will help to inform you about things you might see in the nature around you.
