We came on a cold winter's day to find some geocaches hidden here. Didn't even know the place existed before now! Lovely for a walk and full of bird-feeders which are obviously well-tended by volunteers.

I visited on a Sunday morning with two dogs. It was fairly busy, mainly with other dog walkers, but plenty of wildlife to see and hear. Very well maintained without being too intrusive. Will definitely revisit although it is a little too remote to come...More

A lovely little park for the family. You can take a picnic, walk the dog and in Autumn it's great for collecting conkers too!
