We didn't get there until about 12.30pm so went to the café for a quick bite to eat. The prices were ok and I really enjoyed the Millionaire Shortbread! The car park costs £2 per day, per car but someone gave us their ticket as they were leaving.
We walked along Lord Mayors Drive, almost to the end then turned round and came back up. This is one of the paths and we dipped in and out of the woods, it was very muddy and the children had great fun getting covered in it! We only walked a small part of whole place but it still took quite a long time! There are cattle and some other animals roaming in the woods but we didn't see any.
There were quite a few trees hollowed out like this, they looked like they had been burnt.
I think this was the Upper Pond, there were lots of Mandarin Ducks and some Mallards. I couldn't get a very good photo though.
This stream came from the pond above and carries on to the next two ponds, Middle and Swilly Ponds. The stream was very shallow and we walked through it in our welly boots.
