This trail runs along well made tracks with frequent benches. From a clockwise approach it gradually looses height as it passes conifer and mixed woodland to the pond and then to the 'grandparent' Oak tree.

We have an older map of the walks and were very confused until we discovered that for some reason the colours had all changed!

I have spent a long time on line trying to find an updated map but with no luck
