Details

This is a small car park under Norway spruce trees and the gateway to the Forest Garden Discovery Trail, where you can experience trees from all over the world, some with fascinating facts on secret signs.

Listen to the story of a local witch and a demon's tree on our wind-up 'sound stores'. There is a separate car park for disabled users before you get to the main car park with direct access to the all ability trail Forest Garden Discovery Trail.
It starts from the disabled car park and is built to all-ability standards with an easy gradient that is suitable for wheelchair users.
