Nature Trail

the nature trail in the country park

Why not have a wander around our lovely park? The Nature Trail follows a figure of eight route and is just under two miles long. It is possible to walk either loop on its own in about 45 minutes, or to do the complete circuit in roughly an hour and a half.

The West loop goes around an attractive area which, believe it or not, used to be a colliery. It is not surfaced and can be uneven and muddy.

The East loop goes through a more wooded landscape on mainly surfaced paths, though stout footwear is still recommended.

Whichever route you choose, please follow the Countryside Code at all times. Keep dogs on a lead and use the dog waste bins provided.
