A mild and damp winter, muddy earthen paths and wet dead grass abounds, our park has become sombre and forlorn, even the people walking here seem to have a glum air about them. But then a new dawn breaks spreading rich bright shadows across field and river; the first frost of the season has arrived.
A loop walk from the White Bridge to the Netherton Braes, where at the top of the hill there is a Communications tower beside the old World War 2 Ack Ack battery.
This walk is somewhat longer than most of the ones for which a route map has been made. It is best in the Summer when it is hot as a lot of it is under the trees.
There are a large number of ways to walk from the White Bridge to the top wood, round it, and back.
Routes up the way include going up the tarmac path to the stables and then round thro the stables wood, or up the meadow, or somewhat longer by following the river south; the path then comes out below the crematorium, so cut across to the top wood.
This page is based on the work of Bob Gray who walked the park and made an amazing list of the trees that he saw at each spot, marking the spots on a map.
The first [left] tab shows the List of Trees and the Points where they are to be found. The map on the middle tab shows the location of the points. The last [right] tab shows the points in order along the route that Bob followed.
