Walk description:

An area of really nice views with ample parking and a few good cafes. As can be seen there is a choice of routes, but beware whilst some are very firm, flat and well made, many are the opposite. We found that they were once cobbles but have now not been maintained, just had scree over the top. This means the terrain in places in diffcult for wheelchairs as can imagined.

Additional notes:

There is a large expanse of farm land in the centre of the park (ton and ark are on it on the map) and this is only acessed by kissing gates that are impossible to get a wheelchair though. We use an adapted powerchair and although it could cope with the ground, this was more down to some nifty driving and some heavy duty assistance.
