Walk Description

Starting this stroll to the west of the woods where there is car parking on Common Lane you enter a wonderful world of pine woodland. The smell of the trees is a beautiful accompaniment to the fabulous setting of this hidden gem. There is wildlife galore in area with sightings of woodpeckers very common but keep you eyes peeled and you may spot an adder or two in the undergrowth. There are many paths to take but we’d recommend heading eastwards and strolling around, discovering the place for yourself at your own pace.
