Just went to this woodland with my dogs, lovely place but some of the paths run right along the main road with access gates so dogs can easily run into the road - especially as there's many animal scents the dogs like to follow.

Went to this wood for the first time today with my friend and her dog. I walked my dog at this wood today with a friend and her dog. I had not been before. What a wonderful place. Great dog walking place. So big you could get lost. Muddy at the moment, but worth a visit.
