Route Filmstrip & Description

VValidated by Fieldfare

This is a short level trail with plenty of seats around a partially silted up skating pond with lots of wildlife interest. An extended walk is available around an adjoining reservoir but this is far less accessible. There are no gradients, steps on the well surfaced path. There are more than twelve seats around the walk but they are not evenly spread out. Check out the seat tags below the map to see how they are spaced around the walk.
