Find the best Uttoxeter walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Uttoxeter area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Costa Coffee

5 Carters Square High Street, Uttoxeter ST14 7FN, UK – 01889 562391

Friendly staff, good service. No savoury gluten free products only two options of brownie or Bakewell tart, which always seems to be the case. So no lunch for me! Very busy and could do with another member of staff as general cleanliness /clearing tables is suffering??

Great place to meet friends. Lovely staff.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Doveridge Camp Site

3 Derby Rd, Doveridge, Ashbourne DE6 5JR, UK

Lovely stadium. Great atmosphere. Well organised getting people in and out. Facilities are adequate. The only complaint is the location in that getting to and from is hindered because of the City Centre location. If you park within 10 minutes walk, it can take nearly an hour to even get out of the car park.

Uttoxeter Racecourse Caravan and Motorhome Club Site

Wood Ln, Uttoxeter ST14 8BD, UK – 01889 564172

Very easy to get to easy parking and a nice venue. Leaving the place is another story.... Roads get jammed very easily and quickly. There isn't much in the way of seating so bring your own seat. It doesn't seem to be the biggest crowd area but everything is accessible and it's a nice venue. I do think I've been spoiled with market rasen being so good.

Great place. Lovely and clean. Good views. See horses being walked before the race and see jockeys going to be weighed after winning you loads of dosh. Bar. Good variety of foods. Train station. Walk into town in 10 minutes

What to do while you're waiting for help

Do

  • stay calm, most snake bites in the UK are not serious and can be treated

  • keep the part of your body that was bitten as still as you can

  • lie in the recovery position if you can

  • take paracetamol for any pain

  • try to remember the colour and pattern of the snake to tell the doctor

  • take off any jewellery and loosen clothes near the bite, in case it swells

Don’t

  • do not go near the snake, or try to catch or kill it

  • do not try to suck or cut the poison (venom) out of the bite

  • do not tie anything tightly round the part of the body where the bite is

  • do not take aspirin or ibuprofen, as they can make bleeding worse

What happens at the hospital

You will usually need to stay in hospital for at least 24 hours if you have been bitten by a snake.

The bite will be cleaned and bandaged. You may be given an injection to help protect you from tetanus.

If you were bitten by a poisonous (venomous) snake you will be treated with a medicine to fight the venom. This is given through a thin tube into a vein, called a drip.

Types of UK snake

Only 3 types of snake are found in the wild in the UK.

The adder is the only venomous snake, but you should get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Telling the doctors the colour and pattern of the snake that bit you could help them treat it.
