Follow the Grey Wooden Road
We're very lucky to have a large area of heathland within walking distance. It gets very boggy though but the Council have put in long wooden paths so you can cross over to the other side. Wildlife abounds as does the gorse and heather. We even watched a crow dive-bombing a heron that must have landed in a strategic area for a good 10 minutes.
I am not sure what the plant below is, rather unusual. Do you know what it is?
There is plenty of easy access for residents to enjoy the area, there is even a park. Some large trunks have been carved for people to use as seats.
They've built a honeysuckle tunnel for the children to dash through - it' s not quite ready but in time will smell wonderful.
A nice trickly stream gives scope for duck races and pooh sticks under a bridge.
Rhodedendrons, a sign of the lands previous use, are starting to flower.
It's amazing what you find under your very nose!
