I love this place, I'm a regular visitor. It's full of nature and history and changes lots with the seasons. Perfect place to take kids or for dog walkers. Little cafe there too. Thoroughly recommend it.

At the station, hop straight onto the tram for Malin Bridge (buy a return ticket on tram). Easy Walk from there.
