N.B. We’ve given the nearest postcode, but recommend using the links to look up the detailed location. The centre of a postcode may be up to half a mile from your destination.

What you’ll find there…

New for spring 2021! Don’t be put off by the entrance that takes you from the new housing development to the start of the walk. If you follow the route marked “FOLLOW WALKWAY”, flanked by temporary fencing, you’ll eventually find yourself in an extensive meadow and wetland complex. We recommend having a good look at the map on the first information board, as it would be a shame to miss out. There are different routes, but if you explore the full extent, you can walk for over 4km through meadows and woodlands, all on level, surfaced paths. It spans the Devil’s Highway, so be sure to cross the lane and explore both areas. Excellent information boards along the route tell you about the history and the wildlife you might expect to see.

The pictures in the gallery were taken on our first visit in May 2021. The information we’ve given was correct at the time of writing, but we anticipate changes as the development of this interesting greenspace progresses.
