Good for a short walk. There is a car park and map, but the route isn't that clear once you are on the path. Very steep in places.

Great park for the children to play in. Cutting through the wood you can get to Eaton Marshes and go for a walk along the river. In the middle of the countryside yet a stone's throw from the A140!!
