The old school grounds are lovely for walks and picnics. There are some seating areas dotted around. Kids love the adventure and all the trees and greenery.

This is now a brilliant space to explore. Lots of events throughout the year and great variety of plants, trees and wildlife. Nice to walk round by yourself or with grandchildren.
