Woodland Walk - Green Route

Walking trail

Why not see how many native trees you can spot in our woodland? This woodland was once part of the Leggett-inspired parkland. Some of the large old specimen trees will have been planted in the late 1700s as part of this re-design. You will need to pop on your wellies, as the paths are very muddy at this time of year!
