Too close for comfort to the gypsy camp just across the road. The scumbags threatened me and threw stuff at my car. Four men against 1 woman - Lowlife scrotes! The police do nothing, it’s like the Wild West there. Avoid.

Lovely place to walk, take children and picnic or walk dogs however it is becoming dilapidated. Since the wardes were all sacked nobody really looks after it. Paths, fences and handrails all broken and getting over run with Japanese Knot Weed, Himalayan Mallow and the...More
