Howell Wood

Today we took a trip to Howell Wood to take my Springer, Henry for a nice muddy walk and to test out the new Nikon camera I got for Valentines day.

Howell Wood is a Country Park in South Kirkby, Doncaster (Although for those of you who know Barnsley, it’s right near Burntwood and the Robin Hood in Brierley). It’s somewhere I used to walk with my parents as a child, but I couldn’t really remember it too well. It’s hidden away and a nice quiet place to walk your dog off lead, with plenty of benches along the way to sit and enjoy the views. Henry had a great time running through the trees, sniffing the leaves and wading in the mud.
