  • This is a nice short walk through woodland starting at the small free car park.
    The walk is just over half a mile long according to the information board and involves walking along some uneven ground with some mild gradients.
    The walk is ok if you have reasonably good mobility.
    We saw little dog fouling and no litter.
    Overall this is a nice place to visit for a short period of time if living locally and visiting nearby.
