Forest walks are great during the latter months of winter and early spring because more light penetrates through the dense trees of mixed species. Even though plantations of tall trees circle the base of Dodd, there is more of a variety on the upper reaches. Leading up to this walk, much clearing had taken place in Lyzzick Wood on the south-east side of Dodd, and signs stating “no entry” were located on stiles and gates in the area. However, I had prior knowledge that the work had finished by the end of February.
