Too close for comfort to the gypsy camp just across the road. The scumbags threatened me and threw stuff at my car. Four men against 1 woman - Lowlife scrotes! The police do nothing, it’s like the Wild West there. Avoid.

Visited this place recently weather was great. I really enjoyed the walk, it was peaceful and the view was great. There is a playing area for kids also. It also makes a great place for a picnic.
