There were canine capers at Ickworth Park this week as four-legged participants sniffed out the route for the Great British Dog Walk, ahead of the annual event on May 7.

Around 350 adults, plus dogs of all shapes and sizes are expected to take part in this year’s event at the park, a 1800 National Trust property, to help raise money for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

There will be 8km and 3km routes catering for dog-lovers, families, couples, walkers and groups.

The Great British Dog Walk at Ickworth, is one of 20 walks taking place around the country to help ensure more hearing dogs can be trained for deaf children and adults.

Tickets are £10 in advance for adults, online, and £12 on the day. Children under 16 can go for free. For more information visit www.greatbritishdogwalk.org.
