After a journey of just less than 300miles in dreadful weather conditions we arrived to a less than warm welcome. The site has so much to offer as it is part of a truly lovely country park. We did lots of interesting walks The ducKs were very friendly, and we met some very intersting carved trolls in the woods.; you can walk around the park and see lots of clues as to our industrial past. On our walks we were amazed to see how well cared for the park is and how it caters for the local community, with a calendar of activities such as walks, nature trails and fishing competitions etc etc. The whole park is ideal for dog owners.
Bury is the town close by, which is famous for its market. We missed the market as it is only held on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday much to my annoyance, so we must have a return trip here as I do like a good market. One of the things that struck me in Bury was how nice, fresh and cheap all fruit and vegetables were.
The East Lancashire Railway under full steam runs almost through the site, perfect for steam buffs! There is so much to do in this area and one we have not visited before. The site is beautifully maintained and a credit to the wardens. In my book well worth a return visit.
