On 23rd March 2019 we went for a family walk at Allens Field, South Ascot, having never been to the nature spot before. We went on a Saturday lunchtime and did not see anyone else walking there, so it was very peaceful and we were able to enjoy seeing our first bees of the year and two bright yellow moths / butterflies.
You can take a 1.4 mile circular walk which takes approx. 20 – 30 minutes, around the site. Allens Field consists of woodland, wet woodland and grassland space. During our walk we just made up our own route to explore. There is a map in the car park to help guide you around the 9.5 hectare site.
We enjoyed discovering the woodland paths but the best bit for us was discovering the beautiful wooden sculptures at the site. There is a little nature play area (see photo above) and the wood sculptures which are fab.
Allens Field is a designated Wildlife Site with birds, insects, mammals and fungi being seen on the site. A railway line borders part of the site.
Allens Field can be found at: Off Liddel Way, South Ascot, SL5 9UT.
