I have visited this place so many times, in all weathers . It is rarely anything other than quiet and peaceful - occasional walkers going through, or people popping in and out for a quick stroll. Lovely place for a picnic. Apparently there have been...More

A delightful place to walk around especially last summer in the heat so the tall elegant trees gave plenty of shade. I took the dog there frequently for her walk. The area is well maintained by volunteers.

This is a nice short walk from the downs. Or a short drive. There is a car park. It’s not huge but it’s very peaceful and a piece of local history. Many people wouldn’t know it’s there but it is worth a walk around or...More

I visited on a Sunday afternoon and totally enjoyed the serenity of the cathedral. I also enjoyed being able to drum quietly in one of the chapels despite the occasional paserby who didn't seem to mind - if they even heard the drumming. I'll return.

We came across this find after we printed off a walk from the National trust website. It was nice and secluded and the time we got there it was nice and peaceful. There’s not much to offer to spend more time there unless you are...More

If you didn't know what it was, you would be forgiven for thinking it was just sections of shrubs, bushes and trees. Also, it is really tucked away behind houses
