A lovely retreat in an urban environment but why can't the children take all their rubbish back with them? Local enthusiasts decontaminate the stream and environs but the trash comes back. Why do people come to such a nice place and despoil it? Notwithstanding there is a diverse bird life in the surrounding woodland and of course at the bottom... More

Always like to walk through forestry areas. It's peacefully and quaint. Although the dingle is always so full of rubbish it makes me sad and angry.

I've loved this place since I was a child & still enjoy a walk down the old place but have to spend most of my time looking at the floor due to the amount of dog mess. Please clean up after your mutt.

The dingle is a lovely little hidden gem we took the dog for a walk here he loved it too. Nice and chilled walk through woodlands. Plenty of bins for litter and dog mess so there's no excuse to leave it 😊.

Due to lottery funding, the paths and walls have been rebuilt and renewed. The bridges are at present being attended to. Previous people have remarked on unsavoury characters hanging around. This has been a problem in the past but not now. All the properties in the road have just had a facelift thanks to the Council, getting European funding. It... More

This looks like a nice little stream and pretty surroundings, it is, but what you don't see is the antisocial behavior and there are some really strange people that hang around here, day and night. Please be very careful !

Dingle suggested something to me that sounded different did not know what to expect turned out to be a not too unpleasant walk from Colwyns High Street down to the Prom have to say that regeneration work has been undertaken on the prom but doesn't hide the fact that an ugly pier and buildings are still in view and closed...

This walk is not one of the nicest we have ever had in the bay, It starts off by the garage, down past the burn out hotel and through the woods. The stream is littered with rubbish, And it's quite creep at times, A lot of people seem to hang around down there in the evening. We went down there... More
