Being so close to home, Betjeman Park is so beautiful to walk around. Such pretty flowers and wonderfully created paths with milestones to remember.

The millennium park is supposed to be a peaceful, beautiful park, surrounded by wildlife and trees. The trees and bushes are all over growing, litter present pretty much throughout the park, benches broken or dirty. It's also a haven for drug users, I was here...More

Approach from the direction of the Lamb Inn or the Parish Church and you will find this delightful park hidden away under the trees and alongside a duck filled stream. Apart from the performance area this is not a traditional park with well tended lawns....More
