This local walk will give you a chance to sample a lowland heath environment in which a large number of pine trees have been felled as part of a Heathland Recreation Scheme.
Grazing animals have been reintroduced and thus produce a heathland habitat which will encourage, amongst other things, Nightjars, Potter Wasps, and even a carnivorous plant (Sundew) to flourish.
Depending on the season it may be boggy here and there but it should always be possible to navigate around trouble. It is recommended to wear walking boots or at the very least heavy shoes for safety
