The Hub forms part of the Forestry Centre, a web of themed trails and the start of a walk for us. Also a haven at the end of the walk, serving satisfying, no nonsense food washed down with lots of hot tea!

Every time I visit Rosliston I find different things to see. It is quite diverse, with all the different things to experience. Especially if they have event days, or evenings. As there seems to be so much organised for like minded people to participate in.
