The walk

From the car park you will see a greenway starting at the entrance of the Primary School. Walk along this greenway to the right and turn to the left when another greenway cuts across. Follow this path, which will lead along the back of a nature reserve and past Yew Tree Woodland.

When the path meets a road follow the greenway straight across, running along the left of an open space. When another greenway crosses, take the left hand path. Follow this over a road.

Continue along this path, branching off to the left at the northern end of the woods to lead you to a kissing gate and more greenway! Continue along the greenway's twists and turns, crossing roads where necessary.

The path will eventually meet up with a wide track, which runs along the side of a wooded nature reserve. Take a right hand turn along this Strawberry Track and follow it until you reach the mini roundabout.

Take the left hand turn and follow this road straight down until you reach the turning for the Community Centre.
