Milne Holme Pingle. 

Milne Holme Pingle is sited just off the A515 as you travel from Lichfield/Kings Bromley to Yoxall turning left at the last roundabout before the Village . There are places to park but do not block the access gates .

Milne Holme Pingle forms part of The Trent Valley Way, a long distance, way-marked walking route extending 170 miles from its source near Stoke on Trent, to the Humber Estuary. It connects towns and villages, wildlife and history, enhancing wellbeing, attracting visitors to the area and contributing to local economies.


The area is planted with trees and is perfect for relaxing and walking . Dogs must be kept on leads as the area is subject to a Borough Council Order to do so . Please clear up after your dogs too. There are several bins around Milne Holme Pingle.
As Milne Holme Pingle is on the river Trent a new bench and Totem have been sited here to mark the Trent Valley Way by the Severn Trent Way project team.
This is an ideal position to enjoy a picnic whilst taking in the views of the Old Bridge and the river for walkers along the way and for local residents to enjoy .

A newly installed Totem Pole displays a rout map and information regarding the route through Yoxall and adjoining areas. The Parish Council hopes to site a brick built barbecue close by in the near future and the fence to the river will be reinstated .
