Lovely day out. Cheap & cheerful. Wrap up and bring your wellies. Kids will love the park, muddy puddles, feeding the ducks and the ice cream van. Lots of dog walkers and families & couples taking a nice easy walk.

we walked the Leigh Branch canal towpath, which passes through Pennington Flash (and other wetland reserves). Good facilities, interesting interpretation and some great wildlife. The reserve changes dramatically through the year, with wildfowl a speciality in the winter.
