There is a selection of short walks you can take, which go in and around the nature reserve. We went on the perimeter walk – well sort of having got a little lost but ended up on a nice walk along the river.

Saturday Stroll Through Brindle Lodge

I ventured out with the kids this afternoon and thought we would call in on Grandad and Grandma and then take a stroll around Brindle Lodge. This is somewhere I would have walked through many a time as child but never been back since.
