i take my dog for a walk in the dingle. Great potential if dog walkers picked up the POO after themselves and people weren't such litter-louts. Very pleasant place to walk lots of birds and wild life to look at but needs a lot of TLC to bring it up to a decent standard

Basically it's a path normally full of dog poo with a steam by it which normally has at least one trolly in it. Not really a place to go unless for a short cut. Why this is on trip advisor is beyond me.

Not since I was a kid have I used the path beside the stream to get from the town to the prom, what has happened? It used to be a pleasant stroll but now the rubbish in the stream, the dodgy smells ugh! Wake up CBBC get some one to clean it up

A lovely retreat in an urban environment but why can't the children take all their rubbish back with them? Local enthusiasts decontaminate the stream and environs but the trash comes back. Why do people come to such a nice place and despoil it? Notwithstanding there is a diverse bird life in the surrounding woodland and of course at the bottom... More

Always like to walk through forestry areas. It's peacefully and quaint. Although the dingle is always so full of rubbish it makes me sad and angry.

I've loved this place since I was a child & still enjoy a walk down the old place but have to spend most of my time looking at the floor due to the amount of dog mess. Please clean up after your mutt.

The dingle is a lovely little hidden gem we took the dog for a walk here he loved it too. Nice and chilled walk through woodlands. Plenty of bins for litter and dog mess so there's no excuse to leave it 😊.

Due to lottery funding, the paths and walls have been rebuilt and renewed. The bridges are at present being attended to. Previous people have remarked on unsavoury characters hanging around. This has been a problem in the past but not now. All the properties in the road have just had a facelift thanks to the Council, getting European funding. It... More
