I've waited ages to come here with my dog and finally did it yesterday.

Wow, what a disappointment it is!

According to the website there's 3 walks (Silver @ 1 mile, Gold @ 3 and Diamond @ 5.5) but there's no signs or anything to show you where to go.

There's no proper walking trails just muddy tracks. It's not obvious where to go, and there's no way to just walk round the flash itself, you end up going through other peoples farms and businesses and ending up on a road.

The car park shuts at 4 so if you arrive at 2 like I did then you feel very rushed! I don't mind getting lost but getting lost and not being able to get my car out the car park...

And for dog walkers where are the poo bins? I saw 1 poo bin the whole time I was there.

Was no impressed with this place at all and won't be returning.

Whether you're in for a walk with the family, a relaxing solo walk, bird watching or taking the children to play in the park, its a great nature park.

I love this place for walking my dog and people watching.
Sunsets over the flash are beautiful.
There's usually an icecream van or a food van parked up. There are seats and picnic benches and a public loo.

Went to watch a park run, in fact watched quite a number of them.

Very pleasant park, good paths and some bird watching facilities too.

Food and ice cream vans near the car park but if you want a bacon barm be prepared for a hefty price.

Lovely place in the summer
