What you’ll find there…
*** Please be warned, we were notified on 28th July 2020 of a large nest of wasps near the footpath in long grass. Unfortunately disturbed by a walker who was swarmed and stung repeatedly.
An impressive new greenspace for 2018. An information board in the new car park displays a clear map, showing the choice of routes, starting with a short loop on a well finished path. This part is secured by post and rail fencing and could make the perfect place for a puppy’s first off-lead experience.
If you branch out from the surfaced path, you can make the loop around neighbouring fields. On a visit in November 2018 this bit wasn’t signposted yet, but there was a fairly well trodden path over a bridge and around a large field.
The meadow boundary already has many fine mature trees. And as newly planted trees mature, and the wildflower meadow develops, we’re sure this new space will become a lovely place to visit, with decent length walks.
