Love next to the park. Car park available and care. You will need to check opening times of care. Plenty of walks and lots of nature to see and admire. Pond dipping for children and during school holidays activities are arranged.

I happened on this place by chance and gives a great insight into the history of Apedale. Well worth a visit while out walking around the area.
