    Went for a walk here today. Easy to find as sign posted. Car park is quite small but you can park on road edge if needed. We did the red route which is the riverside walk but plenty of other routes to follow. Red route was well signed and easy to follow although it dose have some steep steps on the route. On red route you get to follow part of the yellow route ( sculpture route ) where there are trees with carvings of animals in them. Be great for kids to find and yellow route didn’t look that long. There is a nice little cafe at car park with a little picnic area selling hot and cold food as well as drinks! The sausage and bacon bap is very nice!! We also noticed as we were leaving there is a route on the other side of the main road to walk aswell so plenty of options. As I said the route we did had some steep steps and hilly bits, but well worth the walk.
