Just a few miles from The Lavender Cottage you’ll find a quiet spot for a snack and a walk across the water through this historic bridge. Unfortunately, graffiti has damaged the original appearance on the interior, but still a tranquil spot to visit.

A sign on the road alerted us to this attraction. Worth the 3miles out of the way to check out. Thought it was something we could still drive through, but it’s now a pull off area which allowed us to park and walk around for...More

Might do more harm than good! Better suggestion: Everyone grow up and be less self centered. It is not all about you!
