We walk our dogs in Friston forest often, usually from Butchershole car park.We really enjoy it as do the dogs, it's
a beautiful place at any time of the year.The only downside, in my opinion, is the amount of bags with dog waste left laying about and hanging from bushes.Surely it is not too difficult to
carry these bags to,and deposit them in, the bins provided.Apart from that we appreciate the walks and think that the cost of the annual discovery pass is money well spent.
