Went for something specific: to see spawning frogs. The wood did not disappoint, I saw several of the amorous amphibians. In different seasons this place provides different natural wonders. Warning: this was a sunny February day, but I knew to come in Wellington boots. There...More

Great spot to take your dog for a walk, lovely & peaceful. There's an exercise station & picnic tables, also a small pond with a bridge over it.

Very infant woodland, I can excuse that but to call a dirty bit of water with drainage pipes exposed, a pond is a bit of a far stretch. I am sure in a few years it will look fantastic. What I feel spoilt the woods...More

This very immature woodland, provides the location for a pleasant circular walk stroll. Go regularly and watch the tiny saplings grow and the ground flora change over the seasons. Easy paths to follow and quite flat.

This is a perfect example of how local councils waste the rate payers money. The so called sculptures are like something found in a scrap yard. The walk itself is also very uninteresting. The money could have been put to much better use by restoring/repairing...More
