This is such a hidden gem. Just stops you thinking that you are in the middle of a busy town. Take your time and enjoy the experience

Lovely to walk or cycle along for two or three miles but be careful of dogs and young children if cycling. You may see kingfishers or even otters if you are lucky. There is also a duckpond and first world war murals.

It remains a lovely place to go for a quiet walk. There are nice plants all around, plus the nice clean river, and as well as a well-signposted circular walk (which takes about 30 minutes), there are also walks off at a tangent if you...More
