I went exploring and ended up Walking from Westmorlands Park to Edmunds Green and Lane, I did this as a buggy walk back whilst my little one had a nap. There was also a food chain nature trail along the walk so it’s great if you have children who like spotting things on a walk.
Where do you walk?
From the free car park (details below) at Westmorlands Park cross the road and walk down the hill with the play area on the right in the direction on the pond. You will then see the wooden sundial on your right. If you go straight on or right you can go for a walk around Westmorlands pond.
However, turn left which will take you past a couple of wooden sculptures. Then crossed the road at the traffic lights and re-joined the footpath, Tesco’s is on the right-hand side.
Keep following the path, you will then cross a footbridge and keep seeing wooden sculptures along your walk. Keep following the path and you will then cross another footbridge. Here follow the wooden sign post towards Edmunds Green.
Now you will need to keep following the footpath straight on, there is a little stream to your right, with more wooden sculptures.
Then you will reach the main road (Harvest Ride). At the traffic lights, cross the road and keep walking straight on until you get to another footbridge. At the bridge turn right and you will find a small apple orchard and also Edmunds Green which is 2.3 hectares of open space. I didn’t walk right around Edmunds Green but there are more fab wooden sculptures including a wooden telescope, flower and deer.
I then re-traced my steps back and walked back to the car.
The walk was long and took me a good hour there and back. This was pushing a buggy and walking at adult pace, so you could do part of the walk if you don’t think little legs will manage the whole distance and there are good number of sculptures to spot en-route.
Is the walk buggy and dog friendly?
This walk is buggy friendly and dog friendly, with dogs being able to have a run around at Edmunds Green and Westmorland Park.
About the Food Chain Trail
On the wooden sculptures there are silver plaques, which have pictures on and you can take rubbings on them – so take paper and crayons / colouring pencils if you want to give this a go. The food chain trail also goes into woods at Westmorlands Park (Hayley Green Wood) which can be found at the opposite side of the car park to this walk – although in the woods and around Westmorlands Park you will spot wooden posts with the silver plaques attached.
About Westmorland Park
At Westmorland Park there has a lovely play area, plus play equipment for older children. There is a pond, we always take food to feed the birds. There is also a little stream in the woods next to Westmorlands pond. There are tennis courts and Hayley Green Woods to explore.
