Beautiful woods and views, this should be a great place to bring the family and explore nature and get some fresh air. Unfortunatly the place is plastered in copious amounts of dog mess. All down the sides of the path some on the path, its everywhere. Rather than being able to explore you feel trapped on the path otherwise you are constantly eyes down for yourself and the kids looking out for dog mess. We stopped at one of the lookout points, and whilst admireing the view a couple came along with there dog which stopped in front of us took a dump and the couple simply smiled said good afternoon and walked off. And then theres the dog poo bags hanging in trees and hedges or left in piles by signs. Woods for everyone...clearly not, just dog walkers.
