Lovely walk, well designed. Gives one a brief tour of the village along with history. Takes approximately 45 minutes or at your own pace. Highly recommend.

This is a simple trail of owls on the pavement with little points of interest Good to keep children busy. Holt is an incredibly quaint place with lots of lovely places to eat and drink, do the tour, have some lunch and peruse the shops!
