Those with limited mobility may be interested to know that we have installed numerous "perch" seats along two short walks in the woods.
From West End Road carpark there is a short walk through Jenny's Wood. This is only about a quarter of a mile but there are 2 benches and 3 perch seats where one take a breather.
From Old Hammond Beck there is a slightly longer walk, but still less than half a mile, around the Oak Wood. On this route there 4 benches and 6 perches.
We hope these short walks, with plenty of places to pause, will encourage those with limited mobility, perhaps following a stroke or joint replacements, to spend some time out in the fresh air. If you know someone like this why not offer to take them for a short trip out.
There are plenty of longer walks for those more able.
