A lovely little urban wood planted by local people to mark the millennium. This site has fine views over the sea to the Isle of Man Scotland Morecambe Bay and the Lake District. There is a pleasant circular walk of 800m mostly surfaced which provides a choice of routes for visitors to explore and benches to rest on whilst admiring the views whilst the seagulls call overhead.
