  • We made the long walk yesterday Our first time at peatlands & really impressed. Tidy, well maintained litter free walk through a range of habitats. Lots of wildlife to see…. Baby moorhens, Jay birds, meadow pipits, a thrush family & many other birds…maybe even a hen harrier only it was a bit high in the sky to be certain. Park is so easily accessed from the motorway. Will definitely be back.
