A great place to walk and take in nature at it's best. Walks for dogs are great, but be aware of the resident wildlife and keep control of your dog (on lead is best) Take your dog doings away with you and dispose of sensibly.?

Years ago, this used to be a wonderful unspoilt wild place where the river would flood the marshes in winter for cattle to graze in the summer. Now, it's been turned in to a regimented 'nature reserve' with walkways, signposts and the obligatory bird hide....More
