What you’ll find there…
Still in the setup phase at the time of writing, so there aren’t any bins or information signs yet. But this place is still well worth seeking out! There’s a huge area of fenced meadow, the perfect place for a bit of peace and quiet.
Because the signage hasn’t been installed yet, it’s not obvious where to head from the car park. You want to cross the disused railway, now a surfaced footpath, that runs alongside the car park. Then take the path that goes slightly downhill, heading south-east. Follow this path for approx. 200m and you will come to a metal gate leading into the meadows. The grid reference is approx. SU 89662 49705. There are numerous entry points on both sides of this path, but this is the nearest one to the car park.
