  • Some nice walks here in this small wood to clear the head. There are a lot of small wooden bridges over small streams and larger wooden bridges over the river which blend in nicely with the forest. Plenty of benches to relax at. Not the most incredible or breathtaking views or scenery but pleasant nevertheless. Lots of non-native large trees and are signposted.
