I would advise anyone before they go to check how much the parking is and how long they would intend to stay and decide if the parking costs make it worthwhile going. If you want to walk around some woodlands then you can go to...More

Great location, but £12 to park? And couldn’t even provide bins, so every bench, table, play area or forest location was covered in rubbish! Defeating the whole objective! I even saw staff paid to go litter picking at the end of the day, false economy...More

Parking varies between weekend Andy weekday and time of year from about £1 to £12. Entry for the trail is free. Things like the train cost a bit extra. Yes you can take dogs.
