Barber Trail Description

This trail takes you alongside the woodlands, hedgerows and meadows of the site and provides views of neighbouring fields before returning to the main pond via Engine Lane's avenue of Limes. Listen out for Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs in the Spring or Goldfinches feeding in the Autumn.  Gatekeeper or Speckled Wood butterflies may be seen along the trail in Summer.  With links to other public footpaths it can easily form part of a longer walk.

Walker Trail Description

A short circular walk that takes you to the pond and dipping platform, up through the meadows and past the woodlands.  Look out for House Martins at the pond or a Skylark over the meadows in spring.  Insects such as Common Darter dragonflies may be spotted in summer.  The walk can be shortened by taking the path to the left from the car park past the auditorium.  Choosing the mown path to your left takes you across one of the meadows where you re-join a path back to the car park.
