The quarry park has beautiful river views, a dingle which has a pond and an amazing array of gorgeous flowers. There is a children's play area & a mini splash park. There is also a cafe to purchase food and drinks.

Took a nice walk round what is known locally as ''The Dingle'' Beautiful scenery and 'iron' sculptures So pretty even for a early February day, I genuinely can not wait until spring/summer when the flowers are in bloom
