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.

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!

It's a lovely little place, tucked away in the backroads of Essex. It's not big, but it has a lot to offer in terms of native flowers and wildlife, with attractive little meandering paths. Very few people seem to go here, so it's a wonderfully...More
