What to see: The park consists of meadows, ponds, lakes, hedges and woodland, and is popular with ramblers and nature enthusiasts. The area is a designated nature reserve, and is used by conservation groups. Over 800 species of wildlife live here, amongst them 21 types of butterfly and 80 birds. The meadows are still cut for hay once a year in July, before being transported to a farm. In the past, sheep and cattle would roam freely over the green space.
