The Adventures of Nova

Nova and her owner Dean have visited many beautiful locations in our area and recorded their walks and adventures. They have produced some wonderful guides to local walks, from the perspective of dog walkers, and shared them on Facebook and in four downloadable volumes.   

We were thrilled to see their description of the BET woods and the accompanying delightful photos of our sights and features.

“This place is amazing and definitely our favourite local spot, no matter what path you take there's always something interesting to see.”

Have a look at Dean's amazing illustration of BETland!! Click on the picture to see a large version and explore all the wonderful details.

Their Facebook page has over 3,000 followers and has similar great guides to other walks including Towerhouse Woods, the Strawberry Line and Brean Down.

Thank you to Nova and Dean for promoting BET!
